I made a point to scamper to the Crown Jewels and the White Tower, which is where the Armoury exhibit is. When my family visited last year, these were the areas my sister and I were zippy-zooing through at the very last minutes. It was nice to actually take time and look at them.
After the tower, we visited St. Paul's Cathedral. It was very similar to many of the other cathedrals we have seen, only it takes an Anglican spin on things. Which really isn't much different from the Catholic spin on buildings, but it does have a bit of a different feel. Chris and Carson and I climbed up to the Whispering Gallery, and then on to the two upper levels that look out at London. It is a stunning view.
We logged about 500 stairs, give or take a few. Yeeeeaaaahhhhh, buddy.
This evening, we went to see War Horse at the New London Theatre. It was utterly phenomenal. Go see it. Now.
The technical aspects were spectacular, and very cinematic. The acting was also great.
Sarah and I stagedoored the actors afterward. It was a little awkward, because none of the actors was really high-profile, so there wasn't a crowd. We did manage to catch one of the puppeteers as well as the actor who played the lead. We had a good few minute chat with him about acting and acting schools and the show.
I wore my black tights today; that must have been it.
