me: wrong side of the mirror

Oh, such a perfect day

(Top row, L to R: Trafalgar Square, ripperlyn and me at the café at the square, fountain at Trafalgar Square. Bottom row, L to R: ripperlyn choosing a whisky at the Albannach, me at the Albannach, antler chandelier at the Albannach)

ripperlyn and I went to the National Gallery to peer at, and wank (verbally) about, the Tom Hunter photo exhibition today. (The short version - the quick frot? - he creates painstaking, achingly unlovely interpretations of master paintings located in his run-down home neighborhood, Hackney.) Next we had a spot of tea at the cafe on the square. Afterwards we went to the nearby whisky bar, The Albannach, which features a fine selection of Scottish whisky and very pretty waitstaff, and drank the afternoon away. Finally we ate pizza in Leicester Square and rode the bus home.

All in all, a 100% successful trip.
