Since 2002, I’ve tried a number of times to get tickets to a play at the Globe Theatre but either the plays were sold out or nothing was on because it was late fall or winter or too early in the spring when no plays are staged because it is considered too cold to have audiences sitting outside. However, this time, we’re here before the season ends in early October and there were a number of plays available. I got tickets for Henry IV, Part 1, an afternoon performance.
Robin, who was without the keys to his flat — long story — slept on the sofa bed and left in the morning to collect his stuff including his keys. Scott wasn’t too lively in the morning.

From the Globe, we walked to near Charing Cross station to Gordon’s Wine bar, one of the oldest bars in London.
We intended to take a taxi to dinner but couldn’t find one not occupied and ended up walking to near Farringdon station which is near many of the barristers’ inns of court to get to Bistrot Bruno Loubet. Along the way, we encountered more grafitti:
Dinner was very good.
