SADLERS WELLS, A GREAT BROWNIE &; Sushi

Last night we met up at Tanakatsu for a sushi dinner before going to see the Birmingham Royal Ballet at Sadlers Wells. I was looking forward to Jessica Lang’s Lyric Pieces but it turned out not to be as good as I remembered. It featured large black accordion pieces moved around the stage. The second […]

Wallace Collection at Hertford House

I was here, outside, a few weeks ago when we were doing the parks tour and googled Wallace Collection. Once at the site I scoured for tours and talks and here I am not three weeks later with a handful of other women sitting in the research library. I was able to take a ten […]

EEL PIE ISLAND

By way of Twickenham- overground to Jubilee to Waterloo to the Great Southwestern Railway to Twickenham out in zone 5! This is the farthest I have traveled. And so many stops and new names… I read about this open day in the Londonist email… “EEL PIE ISLAND: There’s a rare chance to set foot on Twickenham’s mysterious […]

Greenwich and Borough Market

The perfect tourist day began with a trip on the overground. My gps instructed me to go as far as New Cross Gate and once there to catch a bus. Well, as you know without being told, I walked out in the wrong direction. Once I figured this out I had also decided to check […]

Saturday- Soho

Ah, today is chinese food market day down on Brick Lane. We had spotted a Bar place and sought it out for lunch… skin too think. So we picked up a couple of dumplings and not so thrilled there either… BUT.. i will go back because I like Chinese and there were a dozen different […]

Out and About London

Today marks a week since I left New York and I can safely say I am settling. The flat ( I am a Londoner now) is small but comfortable. I have spent the better part of the week struggling with my inner self about materialism, minimalism, needs, wants and giving any more money to Jeff […]
