Our class took a trip through Smithfield’s Market to the priory church of St. Bartholomew the Great, founded in 1123 A.D. Smaller than the cathedrals I had seen, the church had beautiful stained glass and architecture inside. Fun fact: The painter of the font in the church was baptized on my birthday!
We went on to the Spitalfield’s City Farm, where we all enjoyed playing with the animals there. I think the group could agree that the braying donkey and cute little goats were our favorites. The muddy pigs were quite gross, but seemed to enjoy sitting in smelly muck. It was a light hearted way to spend our last afternoon together, so I enjoyed taking goofy pictures with the animals and my classmates.
