Dante's Inferno

I was pretty uncultured while in London except for when my friend Rose booked us in to see this temporary exhibit under the Waterloo tube station entitled Dante's Inferno. Tired from a day of shopping I almost passed, but I am so glad I went along in the end. We got lost on the way, and being an American and all, I complained a bit to the proprietor upon entering, 'But that's part of the experience' she replied as we walked toward a full screen barking pit bull. Favorite pieces included this ever bubbling film mirrored in oil entitled 'The Heretics Gate', which looked like sun or water or hell (we were mesmerized), a huge double sized etching in a wall of Bernie Madoff (the epitome of evil) entitled 'Bernie Made Off' and glowing gold ships suspended in air, as if they were on their way to a ghost battle, to a far away land.

Better photos of the exhibit here.

A return to London town.

It was good, real good! I shopped, walked, lunched (in general ate a lot), and drank many a pint....but most importantly I caught up with my very lovely friends that I missed so much. I have rubbish photos, but it's the memories that will sustain me.

Fish and chips and maybe a pair of glasses too?

Well well well, if it isn't the two Sarah's together again.

Ottolingi breakfast for one.

Two American's take London by bus, or by pint after pint (Shoreditch house here we come).

How did this garlic get in my bag? 'I am with Rose here, everyone I am with ROSE!'

Laura on her wheels, I had trouble!
