This face is the result of eating Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. I tried vomit, earthworm, ear wax, and dirt. The worst bean was ear wax. We tried them on the train to Edinburgh.
Here is Claire trying a vomit-flavored bean. Gross.
There were good ones too, like soap, cherry, watermelon, and cinnamon. We bought the beans at King’s Cross Station, Platform 9 3/4, in London.
Here I am going into Platform 9 3/4. We missed the Hogwarts Express, though, and went to Edinburgh instead.
Here I am picking out a wand!
Here I am trying out a spell!
Before we left Oxford, though, I went to Christ Church to see the Great Hall where they filmed some of Harry Potter.
Here Grace, Claire, me, and our friend Hanna are in the Great Hall.
We met a nice porter who told us that the pictures actually move. We did not believe him. But then we looked at the eyes and walked passed the paintings, and they really moved their heads and looked at us!
Here we are running down the stairs at Christ Church College. This is where the students in Harry Potter file up the stairs in the first movie.
