To be or not to be...

This week might as well have been a Shakespearean festival. First, we had the opportunity to see The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Globe Theater! Then the next day we went to: Shakespeare's wife's home, Shakespeare's mom's farm, Shakespeare's birthplace, Shakespeare's mansion, and Shakespeare's grave! Stratford is a really beautiful little town, and they have a Harry Potter store so I got to drink BUTTERBEER!

Just waiting in line at the Globe...

True Shakespearean experience = standing during all 2.5 hours of the play...
so we all wore our comfy shoes!

We were "groundlings"

Shakespeare's Birthplace!

Phrases that Shakespeare coined:
  • "neither rhyme nor reason"
  • "star-crossed lovers"
  • "kill him with kindness"
  • "a sorry sight"
  • "the short and the long of it"
  • "what the dickens!"

cool huh?
