London lights

Tuesday 19. 11. 19 Just back from a week in London where I met up with Carole and Julia. Saw a number of exhibitions. Highlights were William Blake at Tate Britain, Peter Doig at Michael Werner and Anthony Gormley at the RA. Met two new people: Julian Huxley, photographer https://julianhuxley.wixsite.com/photography, outside Burberries and Oswald De Sybel at Tate Britain. Julian was taking a self portrait in the reflections of the display in the store and Julian was sketching me. I had interesting chats with both. Carole, Julia and I visited Maureen in Sandhurst, had a tasty dinner with Polly in Covent Garden and also saw the lights in Regent and Carnaby streets. A busy trip comme toujours!

The Netherlands

Tuesday 08. 10. 19 Just back from a week cycling with Jason along the medieval Hanseatic Trading route in Holland. We rode about 50+kms a day, slept and ate on a boat and generally had a good time and met some interesting people. The landscape was interesting too with dykes and woods, rivers and lakes but what was really spectacular were the cloud formations. Of course it rained most days but never all day. We spent the last weekend in Amsterdam and saw some good expos. The only downside was that I got my wallet stolen on Sunday so have been busy cancelling credit cards, and searching for replacement health cards, driving licence etc etc. Tant pis!
