If the raison d’etre for our Madrid trip was the visit to The Prado Museum, the prime purpose for London finally was to be able to see Matilda the Musical. Wow!
In 2012 it won seven Laurence Olivier Awards (London’s version of Tony Award), the most ever for a London production.
We had dinner overlooking the Tower Bridge.
Having been to London so many times, we decided to stay in a totally different part of town, actually across the River Thames at the Shangri-La which is on top of The Shard, the tallest building in Wester Europe. It is gorgeous with amazing views. The three photo above are from our room.
We spent an afternoon at Tate Modern, one of the world’s best contemporary art museums. As usual it was good that I had a guide to have some clue as to what I was looking at.
We were very lucky in that they have a major Picasso exhibition on now that is over in just a few days. We liked it way better than the rest of the museum.
Picasso was a guy who always had sex on his mind (or hers in this case).
