Transiting at Seatac Airport. This is actually much better than I expected. We don't need to retrieve our luggage even we flew in in a different airline ; nor do we have to go through security again.
The checkout is at 10am and the flight is at 5:18pm. So we decided to save on taxi, Heathrow Express or even Heathrow Connect. We took the tube from Paddington to King's Cross and from there to Heathrow. The journey took over 90 mins. But we literally only used 4 GBP because we have the last journey benefit on our Oyster Card! (i.e. we currently have negative balance on the cards :) )Read more
A modern adaption of Hamlet. With Andrew Scott of Moriarty's frame as the Prince. The play is based on a modern setting in Denmark but the words are still Shakespearian. Andrew Scott was excellent! Loved it!
The theatre itself is pretty old, the seats are quite small, but it has many levels so that all the seats can be "close" to the stage but just higher.Read more
It was raining hard so the Trafalgar Square is pretty empty for once. We did another round of National Gallery, focussing on Turner. We bumped into an art appreciation class, so we just shameless followed along. Meanwhile, we discovered works like the Four Elements by Beuckelaer and Turner's inspiration Claude.
After that, we have a late lunch/dinner at a sandwich chain Pret Manger before walking over the the Harold Pinter Theatre.Read more
Although duped "the world's largest antique market" by the official website, it's quite a contrast between the quietness we saw on a Monday and the official pictures on Fridays and Saturdays. Nevertheless, it gives us opportunities to leisurely take photos of the pretty pastel coloured buildings.Read more
