London - an evening in London

After the Globe Theatre we had free time to explore the city.
Some of us went to the Tate Modern Museum for viewing, others went to Harrods for shopping, others circled back and revisited some of the places we had seen by bus on the sightseeing tour the other day, for learning. All of us certainly took lots of pictures for capturing the moments!

A number of us met up at Gordon's Wine Bar (a recommendation of Katie's, as she has known this establishment for years and it is close to the National Theatre). Great wine, some food and terrific story-telling wrapped up a terrific day in London.

But we weren't done yet - 12 of us moved on tho the National Theatre to catch a performance of "Our Class". We made it to the theatre and headed to the Cottlesloe stage, which is a black box theater (new to some of us). The actors were so close!!

The performance was fantastic! Gripping story and wonderful acting all the way through. And while terrific, it was certainly a drama - very intense, moving stories, and dark themes kept the crowd interested and even brought about some tears. Thanks to Katie for the suggestion!! It was a wonderful night at the theatre.

Can't wait to hear what the others did with their night! Tomorrow we're off to Stonehenge and Bath and then will have dinner with some of the current Stonehill students in England for the semester.

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
