Had friends over for lunch which was good. Showing them the new place for the first time. Both remarked, separately “it feels so very… London”. Which is quite apt.
We went to Tate Britain (a 10-15 minute walk from the flat) which, embarrassingly, I hadn’t been to before. I had really wanted to see ‘Jaguar and Harrier’, by Fiona Banner – an exhibition I’ve blogged about on a previous occasion. It didn’t disappoint. Quite incredible seeing two jet fighters that had seen service in the first Iraq war. One is lying upside down, belly-up – the other is dangled from the ceiling. Powerful human instruments to behold and rightly able to press my ‘Top Gun’ button.
A few photos I took:
The Thames isn’t far from where I now live. You look south onto Vauxhall. MI6 headquarters is the building on the left.
