Headed Home from Vacation

Lynne Kiesling

Headed home from a week’s vacation in England, which is the reason for my radio silence here! I was going to post, but traveling with the KP Spouse and two of our best friends meant for a fun and busy schedule!

The primary event of/reason for the trip was Hamlet at the Royal Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon, starring David Tennant as Hamlet and Patrick Stewart as Claudius. It was spectacular. Tennant was a relatively manic Hamlet, as you’d expect if you’ve seen his Dr. Who, and he played it extremely well. Patrick Stewart is amazing.

The other highlight was catching up with many of my British friends, and sharing England with one of our fellow travelers who was an “England virgin”.

I have some economics-related anecdotes to share, but we’re about to board our flight. Toodle pip!
