The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


Oh dear! I seem to be getting up later each day, as I was not up and about until half past eleven. I went straight away and had a bath at the public place nearby, which cheered me up as well as cleaning me.

I had thought to go to the play again, but all tickets were sold, and I was forced to queue for possible returned tickets, I was second from the front by the time the performance started, and so felt rather disappointed when we were turned away.

Further back in the queue were three American girls, who I invited for coffee, and then to the pub. They were disappointed too, as well as being puzzled by the whole concept of queuing. They had pretty well "done" Europe in the approved fashion, and were "doing" Stratford as a postscript to "doing" England. Sigh.

We all decided that, as we had missed Julius Caesar, we would all make sure of seeing Antony and Cleopatra the next day.
