The [New] Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This year (2016) marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death in 1666, and there are a lot of events around the world to commemorate the famous playwright.


Gerry and I passed by the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, rebuilt in 1997 based on the original 1600s designs.



As I mentioned earlier, my meetup with Romboid was a last-minute arrangement. We ended up meeting at the Tower Bridge and walked along the Bankside and Riverside (southern bank of the Thames). That by itself was another serendipity. I had sort of wanted to explore Southwark and Lambeth, but dropped the plan as my itinerary became much too cramped. But thanks to Gerry, I ended up doing the very pleasant riparian walk after all and with a local friend!
