We started our last full day in London with a class meeting at 9am. Each student in the class spent a few minutes discussing their thesis and final project ideas. After class, we had a brief break and then met outside our flats to head over to Shakespeare’s Globe for a performance of “Antony and Cleopatra”.
We took the tube to St. Paul’s and crossed the Millennium Bridge to the theater. Seeing a play at The Globe is much like seeing a play during Elizabethan times.
After the play, we had tickets for a “Talking Theater” presentation. Two of the actors from the performance talked about what it was like to act in a play at The Globe. They also answered questions from the audience.
After the “Talking Theater” presentation, we took the tube back to our Marylebone neighborhood. We had reserved some space in a local pub to have a ‘Farewell to London” get-together. We enjoyed spending some time together and toasting our London adventures.
Dr. Firenze and Dr. Saraceno decided to make the most of our last night in London, giving speed skating, speed skidding, skeleton and, of course, curling, a try.
I think they will both be grateful to sit and relax on the plane tomorrow.
Despite the cold and rainy weather, it has been a wonderful week in London. We leave tomorrow morning to make our way back to Binghamton and we are all a little sad to be saying good-bye. This group of students has been great and we are really proud of them! Thanks to them for their attention, courtesy and hard work. And thanks to you for following our adventures!
Cheers from London!
