England: Stratford-upon-Avon aka The highlight of my trip so far
Today marked the highlight of our trip so far--a visit to Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon.
|Technically, I was not supposed to take this picture of the room where he was born. Shhh! Don't tell anyone!|
|These next several pictures are of the back and front of his childhood home.|
|Actors perform passages from Shakespeare's works in the backyard courtyard. Tell them what you want to hear, and they'll perform it.|
|I just can't get enough of these Tudor style houses!|
|This is King Edward VI grammar School where Shakespeare received his education.|
|This is an excavation of the house where Shakespeare moved when he retired in 1610.|
|A real, live thatched roof!|
We're leaving Reading tomorrow, bound for London and the next leg of our adventure. Stay tuned...
