Tube To Kew

Robin’s Wednesday class is at The National Archives, located adjacent to Kew Gardens, the Royal Botanical Gardens. It houses 1000 years of UK history, including William Shakespeare’s handwritten will.

While Robin is in class I’ll tour the gardens, although it’s probably a bit early for the quintessential Kew Gardens experience. I suspect, however, it’ll look like the Garden of Eden compared to The Mermaid Tavern Gardens in Santa Fe.

Meanwhile, waiting for the Gardens to open at 9:30 and waiting for Robin’s class to start, I’m in the National Archives Cafe enjoying a very good WiFi connection.

The Tube to Kew. Tubes are popular destinations for Readers and Thinkers.

Oh wait, she’s saying “no photography allowed.”

The National Archives is the largest archive in London.
