“Tour Diary” – Tribe Tour 2003 – Report 36

Toni and Beth at The Globe

Sunday 6th April 2003

Dear Tour Diary
An early start for some and a long sleep in for others! Some of us had decided that today was our day to catch up with family and friends. Michael left early to catch up with his cousins, Danny went off to meet an old friend from Cloud 9 and Toni met up again with her friend from France.

Early in the afternoon Tom, Matt and Meryl decided to catch a movie while Toni and her friend Raphael, Beth, Emily and Saranne decided to head over to the South Bank and visit the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre. They had a great time. Each of us had a different view of the various artistic pieces at the Tate but everyone loved it.

At the Globe everyone was fascinated! A lot of the cast are really into Shakespeare and the tour was great with lots of information and a good feeling for what life and theatre must have been like back then. It was bigger than we had imagined and couldn’t help reminding us of Shakespeare in Love.

After buying a few pieces of memorabilia we had lunch in the Globe Cafe and then we all headed back to the hotel to meet up for tea.

We headed to a little Thai place – Beth loves Thai food – and spent the evening chatting, and talking about what we’re going to do once we get back to New Zealand.
