On the move: at peace.
Its ben a busy couple of weeks, as ever. We were down in london visiting the G funk and (....wait....) helen. A top time had. Friday was traveling and chilling, we were in Hackney, a fine spot, really like it. Saturday was all about coffee, crosswords, the barbican (amazing - reminiscent of JG Ballard's stories of the descent of the middle classes, whilst at the same time being oddly serene) and incredible breakfasting. We popped in to see ben at his gallery, Austin, and watched as the fixed fashinistas rolled by (photo from tipped.co.uk).The number of singlespeeds decked out like fixies (ie no rear brake) is frightening. After a glass or 2 of belgium's finest in the Dove, we dropped in to Moro for a world class meal. Amazing food, better company.
We failed at the karaoke. We were aiming for something against the run of the mill, eye of the tiger perhaps, but it didnt happen. Sleep. Sunday after a wander through the flower market, we did another crossword while waiting for food. Who knew about the apse? We thought arse, hence the moustache...
