London Update

It’s been a rather gray and rainy couple of days. Fortunately, I bought an umbrella when I arrived. Unfortunately, I left it in the hotel today, and decided to get lost (and soaked) in the Lower Marsh portion of the city.

I did get a few shots during the rain-breaks and managed to keep my camera mostly dry. I know they’re kinda touristy shots but there are a couple funky ones. I think I am headed out of here in the next day or so.

I went to DJ Magazine’s annual awards bash, and was less than impressed. That’s what happens, I guess, when you’re not on the cool list.

  1. So I talked to Kathleen and she said she would be happy to meet you Saturday morning if you’re still around and don’t have other plans. She’s going to be meeting an exceedingly interesting antique dealer that she and her boss have dealt with for years–the shop is located at the top of Portobello Rd so not only would you get to see that scene but meet a very classy, very British grande dame–trudi Weaver is her name (and the name of her shop) and there will definately be croissants and cappuccino involved. Local color anyway…

    Kathleen says you should go to the Victoria and Albert Museum and if you can look up any museum or gallery that carries the paintings of Lucien Freud he is my favorite contemporary british painter…

    cheers, Don
