Choir Post 7 - Billy Elliott and The London Eye
Today we had a little bit of time to relax (very little, but still some).
9:15 AM It was out and about this morning. First stop - the London Eye! What was the largest wheel in the world, this giant ride was a great way to view London from above, with all us in one pod! You could tell it was ours with all of the camera flashes! The view, even with clouds and some rain, was breath taking.
After the London Eye, it was time for a final chance to explore and enjoy all London has to offer! Students experienced the 4D experience on the south docks, finished some final souvonier shopping, and made a mad dash to many of the sites they were still wanting to see. They included the home of George Frederic Handel, Charles Dickens, the Sherlock Holmes Museum, tours of Westminster Abbey, and much, much more.
4:15 pm After some lunch we made our way back to the hotel to change for our West End Show experience...all dressed up, it was time to go see the musical Billy Elliott! It was fantastic! What an experience for all of us.
11:30 pm A late dinner and it's off to bed. Tomorrow is the mass choir performance...on the 4th of July! What a way to celebrate and represent the USA for all the world to see!
