a trip to england would not be complete without seeing london. we went to saatchi gallery to see some modern american artists, national history museum (packed full of annoying kids so we missed the dinosaur exhibit), design museum, a few touristy walks, ate some fish and chips and caught a show in covent garden. (jersey boys – the story of frankie valli)
My highlight was hearing kelly sing along to ‘walk like a man’ and ‘big girls don’t cry’.

I’d been dying for some fish and chips and finally got some. Hudson wanted to go to this seedy place. I thought it looked awful; Hudson said it was a little too classy, but that it would do. I guess his philosophy is real fish and chips only come from crap hole in the walls. He’s probably right because it was all tasty, except for disugsting mushy peas. Sometimes the English have such bad taste in food.

mushy peas, aka glorified baby food. disgusto, but I tried them.

An exhibit from Saatchi gallery. When I visited London a few years ago, I went to Saatchi and loved it. The gallery I went to featured young artists and had since been sold and moved (sad), but there is a main Saatchi gallery that I hadn’t known about. There were some cool exhibits; you can see more on thepaperplanes.org when I get that blog up and running.
