And the 6th – I went to Hogwarts

Who knew it was at the Museum of Science?  And I thought I liked the V&A in London.  The Harry Potter Exhibition was quite possibly the most brilliant thing I have done or will do in this town.  A mostly self-directed tour of the wonders of the Harry Potter world, the exhibit was filled with the creatures, props, and costumes used in the films.  A lot of what my friend Kim and I saw were in The Goblet of Fire, so that film now has a special place in my heart.  I wanted to try on Hermione’s Yule Ball gown in the worst way – I’m sure it would’ve fit.  I pulled up a Mandrake, threw a Quaffle through a hoop, sat in Hagrid’s big chair, which was really huge, and heard the Fat Lady sing!  There was so much I can’t even remember it all.  But it was brilliant – if only I didn’t have to come back…
