England Part 4: Tower of London, The Globe, and Theater *edited with new pictures*

The Tower of London has great tour guides.  Our Beefeater, Bob, was funny and entertaining.  We saw the crown jewels, the church where Henry the 8th's other wives were buried, and the twenty one gun salute for Prince Charles' birthday.

Our traveling companions at the Globe, Shakespeare's theater.

Bobby was at the Globe, but he wasn't too happy about it.  He was at that tired, but can't fall asleep, spot.  I had to keep moving to keep him happy.

Wouldn't it be amazing to see a play here?  Only in the summer months, since it's an open air theater.
That night Genevieve and I went to Phantom of the Opera at the Queen's Theater.  The rest of the family stayed home to get some rest.  We had a great time.  I'd never seen Phantom of the Opera, or even read it so it was all a surprise to Genevieve and me.  During a kissing scene in the play, Genna loudly inquires, "Why do people even do that?" with a disgusted look on her face.  Her innocence is so sweet and funny.  I wonder what the people around us thought about that comment.  We weren't supposed to take pictures in the theater, but before I heard that announcement, we did snap a selfie of the two of us.  It was a memorable night for the two of us.
