London day trip report

Day-tripped into London yesterday. It poured most of the time I was there. I attended a great concert at Wigimore Hall and had nice sweet sherry afterward. I then went to National Gallery to see the Renoir exhibition (amazing) and a few rooms of the permanent collection. I then did the WWII-current rooms of the Portrait Gallery (I loved the Blair at War room) and then had an early dinner at Browns (fixed-price menu of the endive salad and fishcakes for 10.95) before heading back to Oxford in time to see Spiderman 3 with a friend.

Hi Joe

I'm enjoying your trip reports from around Europe. How long are you staying in England for?

If you venture west from Oxford in the Cheltenham/Cirencester/Gloucester direction, I could meet you for a mini GTG!

It's on until 5/20/07

The Voyagers to Britain at the Portrait Gallery is also very interesting and on until sometime in June

Heck, I'll miss it. Thanks, Jody. I'd have loved to have seen that.

I'm in the UK until August 10. Am hoping to see the Monet exhibition at the Royal Academy soon and will post on that.

I think it's quite amusing to see:

Wigmore Hall
National Gallery
Portrait Gallery
Spiderman 3

all done in the same day.

Well at least it wasn't Borat. That would really have gone from high to low brow. I actually quite enjoyed Spiderman.
