That said, I slept very poorly last night.
If you'll recall from a much earlier post entitled "My Affliction," I suffer from irrational fear. Since we've been here, I've been doing alright. Mostly.
There is a ghost in our flat.
Okay, that sounds crazy. Let me explain.
The light in our bedroom flickers every time we turn it on. Nothing to get too excited about, I know, but there's more. The door opens and closes on its own. That doesn't sound like much either, except that sometimes it creaks open slowly, and other times it slams fiercely. Also, you have to turn the knob for it to open, and I don't think a breeze is capable of that sort of thing. I was up until 4:00 AM last night because of that damn door. I was only able to go to sleep when I did because the sun rises really early here. Lucky for me.
Anyway, this week was pretty busy. On Wednesday we went on a Shakespeare walk before going to a play. First, we visited Middle Temple Hall, where Shakespeare performed some of his very first plays. Pretty awesome. We also visited Southwark (pronounced Suthick, for some reason) Cathedral, where The Bard attended church. There was a really cool monument to him there but we weren't allowed to take photos. Then we went to the Globe and took a guided tour. After all of that, we saw a presentation of Taming of the Shrew. It was a very interesting adaptation, as it had an all-female cast and 1950s costumes. All-in-all, it was very enjoyable.

|Shakespeare's Globe Theatre|
|Herakles and Nemean Lion|
|Cleopatra. No big deal.|
Today, we're just relaxin' and enjoying our day off. Next week is going to be crazy. We're seeing three plays, going to Stratford, and going to Ireland, so expect a long post soon.
Thanks for reading.
Until next time,
