Given this is my home town I tend to blog less when I’m over here and only cover things I’ve not seen before – so here’s a pot pourri or some more off the beaten track places I’ve been to in the last ten days.
Firstly some black and white pics of the City of London and even on a gray day the architecture and splendour shine through.
Then off to Brixton for an excellent David Bowie Musical walking tour. You walk around spots where he was brought up and Nick plays Bowie songs in full along the way as you stop by iconic places such as the Ritzy Cinema and the Brixton Academy.
As a big Ottolenghi fan I was excited to visit his newest restaurant Rovi with my friend Lorna to celebrate her birthday – as ever the man is a genius! Select a number of the small dishes to share – that way you get to taste more of his inventiveness. Lobster roll and ribs were my favourites.
A trip to the Tate Modern is always worth it as the building is a design marvel. I visited the Olafur Elliasson exhibit – it was futuristic and cool. Finishing soon I think.
And then I finally got to see Hamilton – it was worth waiting four years for – if you can get a ticket GO.
And a highlight was visiting Chihuly Nights at Kew Gardens with my friend Peter I am a massive fan of this glass artist and the installations all through the park are wonderful. Not sure my photos do it justice but did my best. Am going back to see it during the day too. A must see.
