Today involved one major activity – The Harry Potter Studios Tour!!!
We began our tour in the entrance, in the crowd. There were lots of crowds. I grabbed a quick, cheap bite (cheap because I forgot most of my pounds at the flat. Oops!!!) then hopped in line and got started. I cannot stress enough how crowded it was; so many people. The staff was very nice, although way too perky. Cocaine isn’t good if you do it too much, folks.
We saw lots of props, sets, and scale models. I never knew how much work went into making this series…
I really liked the Butterbeer, but Privet Drive, the Knight Bus, and the Shrieking Shack were pretty cool. My favorite of all the rooms, though, was the Creature Lab – lots of cool animatronics. The grand finale was all the artwork, including scale models with an insane amount of detail, and some gorgeous concept art.
After we finished the tour, we made it back to London to have a delicious Indian food dinner – curry!!! I attempted to do laundry, which went fine until I needed to use the dryer. Luckily, a nice man in his underpants told me that the dryer I was attempting to use is broken, so I hauled it all back to air dry. Shrug!
Thoughts so far:
-Harry Potter was so much work to make
-Too much work
-No, that’s cooler!
-Can I ask for a cup of cream instead of a full butterbeer?
-It doesn’t smell funny over here
-Mmmm curry! Spice!
-I’m sleepy now, and cranky.
-Let’s pretend I never have to go home.
-Because it’s fun!
