Gallery hopping in London...

Thanks to Dillon's presence I got to enjoy a number of days gallivanting around different cities. We ended up visiting London for a second time just to complete our to-do list. We started the day visiting the Serpentine Gallery and checking out the summer house installation. It was all so grand! The sun came out for us and we got to goof around and take lots of photos of one another. The next stop on our list was the V&A which I hadn't been to in years! The building itself is so beautiful NEVER MIND the exhibits. The tiled floors are charming. There is even art in the bathroom. Dillon treated us and we got to see the "Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design" exhibition. I found it so interesting as I have never really read into engineering or architecture and I became fascinated. Looking at all the sketches, diagrams and calculations made me realise the amount of knowledge and skill required for the profession. We ate in the V&A café before wandering over to Sketch to meet the final part of our foursome- TOM! We finalised our day and time with Tom by overcoming the vast number of stairs in the new TATE gallery. The lifts just weren't working in our favour. It was awful. We had climbed and wandered like tired zombies around 5 of the floors before managing to get to floor 10, the viewing platform. I definitely need to revisit on a day that isn't as busy (it was opening weekend!). It is hard to appreciate creativity when you have to fight to just get a look. This was another one of those very satisfying, yet tiring and foot-blistering days. I can't wait to be reunited with these guys in the future.
