Back in town

Wednesday 11. 12. 19 Got back safely on Saturday despite strikes and delays at Montpellier airport. Cold and snow when I arrived but it has since warmed up with rain so most of the snow has gone now. Been busy catching up with friends, saw the Downton Abbey film and am back at the Y.

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, 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!
