I’m writing this in an Internet Cafe just across from Paddington Station, feeling rather exhausted from another day of wandering around London. I’m staying with Martha, a friend from my Hall of Residence in Copenhagen who’re spending this semester here, and it’s been great fun.
..and rather hectic – with lots of people and getting in touch with the last stragglers of the international students fleeing Manchester. And then there’s been all the sights to be seen. I went to the National Gallery for the first time, and was amazed by some of the pictures there.
I particularly liked this one:
called Girl on a Divan (‘Jeune femme au divan’) by Berthe Morisot.
and this one:
by J.M.W. Turner, called ‘Rain, Steam, and Speed – The Great Western Railway’
It’s culture, baby. Tomorrow I plan to go to the Tate Modern and see even more art. Now, I think I’ll go home and relax.
