Today we headed out to Hampton Court Palace, on the outskirts of London, which is well known for being the home of King Henry VIII. I went with my class and my teacher this past summer, but I didn't get to do the audio guides which were quite informative. Hampton Court is one of my favorite palaces, possibly just because I love Anne Boleyn.

Tonight, we journeyed back to the West End for Hannah and Dad to see Matilda and Mum and me to see Miss Saigon. I saw it this past summer with the main cast, but tonight we had several covers (Niall Sheehy as Chris, Tanya Manalang, and several others).
Of course, I loved seeing Jon Jon Briones as the Engineer again but I was really impressed by Niall's Chris. If I sound surprised, it's only because I saw my favorite actor (Alistair Brammer) as Chris this past summer and was worried about liking anyone else....but Niall blew me away!
