London




This is intended to be a much longer review of the highlights over the past 24 hrs. -- be patient, i'll repost this in a couple of days with links and text

in the mean time here's the bolts

hotel London Elizabeth: Good spot on Hyde park, reasonable rates (75 pound a night). Terrible beds, really small rooms.

importance of being earnest: pleasant, mediocre cast. great theatre (vaudeville).

national gallery: the mobile walking tour headset things are out-of-site. Obviously there are some great paintings -- the headset describing the paintings, artists and themes made the 2hr.s there outstanding.

dali exhibit: good. not great. but good.

picasso exhibit: bad. stuff they found in his garage maybe?

italin restaurant Assiago: was terrific until the Milanese veal arrived. a fried slab of veal about 15 inches by 12 inches (bigger than the plate). I'd thought that only the Germans considered this food....
