If you are a Shakespeare fanatic, this is another 'sacred' place you simply just can't miss out on. THE GLOBE. Even though it is not the original, it's as close a replica as it gets. The original was destroyed in a fire in 1613. Just by looking at the materials from which the theatre is build, it's not hard to imagine how fast the building would have burnt down. This reconstruction, though not located in the exact location as the original, is just a few hundred metres away from the original site. It was opened in 1997, with a production of Henry V.

Just what exactly are we waiting for?
A guided tour around the theatre!
I was told by the ticketing lady, that we might not be able to take pictures or talk whilst inside the theatre, as there was a rehearsal scheduled. I didn't know whether to be excited or disappointed, as it would be a great experience to actually see a pseudo-performance on stage! But then, I wouldn't be able to take pictures!
Donors (The Dark Lady is the alleged subject of numerous Shakespearean sonnets)
這些人都有捐款（The Dark Lady是莎士比亞許多十四行詩中所提到的主角）
Once we got into the theatre, it turned out there was not rehearsal. I ended up being disappointed about that!
Seats are for those who could afford them!

That's our guide. I thought he looked like David Tennant, from 'Doctor Who'. I managed to find a chance to ask him 'You probably get this a lot, but you look a lot like David Tennant.' And he told me that he had actually auditioned for his double... but obviously he didn't get the part... Or the conversation wouldn't have taken place.
這就是我們那天的解說員。我覺得他長得很像『超時空博士』裡的David Tennant。後來找到機會我就跟他說『我想應該有很多人跟你說過，你長得很像David Tennant！』結果他跟我說他有去試鏡當他的替身。最後當然是沒被選上，否則這段對話就不會存在了！

Heart breaker... 心碎的回憶...
I got this poster for free, from filling out a feedback form. The reason why it was a heart breaker, was because I had gone the extra mile to make sure that this poster was with me the entire day! But! In the end... I still lost it..........................
