Yesterday, I went to London one last time. I walked by St Paul's, over Tower Bridge, and around the Tower of London before heading to the West End. I picked up my ticket, then went back to Covent Garden and Chinatown. I then saw a brand-new musical (opened just a month ago)- the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Roald Dahl's "Matilda". It was one of the best musicals I've seen, and the only time I've ever seen a West End audience give a full standing ovation! Absolutely phenomenal show- great acting, fantastic music and writing, incredible special effects and staging, and a great way to end my final day in London! The final picture in the slide show is a production photo from the Matilda website.
I brought my laptop on the bus, and was able to work on my novel. I also finished reading the final C.J. Sansom novel and moved on to a new novel. I mention this because some of my friends do not understand how I've been in tutorials, a full play, and a choir, and yet still have time to travel every week, write a novel, and read for pleasure. My answer- don't know, but glad I do- this has truly been the time of my life!
One problem with the bus ride back was I kept switching soundtracks in my head. So here are my three favorite songs from the three West End musicals I saw:
The Lion King
And now two weeks of vacation in Europe...
