I Heart Hong Kong

So more jet setting with a long weekend away in HK for a wedding. Wedding was great and catching up with everyone fantastic. So here are the gratuitous photo shots.

P.S. It's starting to look a lot like Christmas.

Mitt, Barack and the American way

It was an interesting time to go to The USA, just before Halloween and with the election 3 weeks away. I don't know what I expected but I certainly didn't expect the very political adverts everywhere. They make the English elections look positively staid.

It really was a trip of extremes with the full on city and then the laid back of fall in the Catskills with farmers markets the amazing fall colours and small town America.

It was the most fantastic trip and for what it's worth I would like Obama to win apparently along with the rest of Europe, but hey what do I know. Still some more photos but we'll save them for another time.

New York New York

Well its been a while hasn't it ? So lets see if I can update you a bit. I went to a great talk at the RA by Michael Wood on The Bronzes of the Tamil people in South India. Very good and the talk wasn't bad either! As my companion noted " He is seducing us with his voice". Well yes, he was!

I highly recommend the RA exhibition  Bronze which is on for a while longer until the 2nd of December. Meanwhile off we went to New York. Mine and the small boys first trip not the Husbands.

Real Brooklyn tin ceiling

Woodstock farmers market

A highlight The Highline

And how was Halloween I hear you ask? Well the natives were friendly, the streets full and the kids happy. All in all most enjoyable.
