Saturday: Heading into London, again

I am feeling well enough to head into town for a while.

I’ll probably find a bite and then go either to the V&A or perhaps the National Gallery for the Canaletto exhibit.  Maybe both!   Or maybe I’ll go to the Gallery first!  I’ll decide when I get on the tube.

I’ll probably save the British Library exhibit on English until Tuesday.  I will also need to stop at the British Museum sometime.

If I am up to it, I’ll get a bite in town for supper, depending on my energy reserves by then.

You can text me 07501852559.  I am using my wonderful old Motorola Razr for the UK vodafone chip.  It isn’t very smart, so you have to say who you are. Don’t send mms, however.  Texts only, please.

I am having a devil of a time with the iPhone app for WordPress.  I’ll do my best to post updates, in case a flash blognic develops.

UPDATE: 1303

I am at the National Gallery and will now enjoy Canaletto et al.

UPDATE: 1634

Taking a pint of ale at 7 Dials and using free wifi.

    I am glad you are feeling somewhat better. I used to live directly across from the Natural History Museum, not too far from the V and A. That area is my old stomping grounds and I love West Kensington. Stay warm and drink hot tea for your health.

  2. I decided against a too swift trip to the V and A. I am wandering around near Covent Garden for a fe lw minutes of people watching before either finding a place to settle or heading to the underground.

  3. Perhaps I shall walk to Fortnum & Mason to look at pudding basins.

    Hey, nice ‘pub’ photo, Father Z!
    Hope you’re feeling better….is there a British version of chicken soup that you can have to beat whatever you’re suffering from?

    Get well Fr. Z!

    I don’t care for the WordPress app for iPhone/ iPad, it leaves a lot to be desired.

  6. Glad you’re feeling better. There’s a lot of stuff going around.

    Mazel Tov on your improved fettle, Father.

    The Canaletto exhibition was beautiful, and so informative. I never knew about his almost-but not-quite-as-talented nephew, Bellotto. I just visited it on the spur of the moment, having admired the great poster advertising it I saw in the Underground. Got a lovely poster in the shop which I’m arranging to get framed.
