12:29 pm: Euston station...revisited
After leaving and going to St Paul's, I noticed that even though half the cathedral is covered with plastic sheeting, it has line drawings on to show what it should look like. Presumably so tourists can take photos as if nothing is wrong.
Then the PRMIA seminar...a slightly different emphasis to what I was expecting, but very useful as a way of keeping up to date and knowing that my thoughts are still on the right track. Not to mention some convenient networking, including one guy who needs a copy of my c.v. soon!
After the seminar, mike2sheds and I went off to a very fine Thai restaurant, name unknown, which was encouragingly busy for a Tuesday and had some pretty good food too. The bus back to his place, a night sleeping in the spare room and the opportunity to meed his wife and three children, evidently the well-loved lights of his life.
Then it was off after breakfast to visit a recruitment bod; we talked for nearly an hour, giving me some time to go and do stuff in London. And what did I do? All this culture must be getting to me. Off to South Kensington, not the Science Museum, nor even the Natural History Museum but the V & A. I have never been there before. It's stuffed full of Art and things, from most of the world, though I couldn't find any sign of a Maori and Polynesian section. But I did find a magnificent room full of Raphael Cartoons, and I want to find more about them. What is happening to me? I blame the company I'm keeping, and the Uffizi and things. After a while there, it was back to Euston to type this lot up before catching the train back to the home city. Is that the right term, or have I spent too much time in computer game land? Wait and see what happens next.
And that's it...a rewarding trip to the big city, and a hope of good things ahead. Let's wait and see.
