postcard from London

We are back in lovely London for Christmas with Kind Dog's family and to do some research for my thesis. And a few treats including seeing Tristan and Isolde at the Royal Opera House tonight- here we are walking around Covent Garden, slowly coming down from the Wagner high.
Walking down the Roman Road in Bow -
We went to the famous pie shop and had pie and mash: I'm working up to eels next.

And of course we made the first of this trip's pilgrimages to the V&A - we spent a fair bit of time looking at the glass gallery. The glass staircase is absolutely beautiful.
 As is the collection of Roman glass.
 And at last the Weston cast court has re-opened after restoration. The cast of Michelangelo's David was particularly impressive.
