I'm expecting our "free time" to be filled with geekeries like the V&A, the London History Museum, St. Paul's, the Guildhall Art Gallery (for some Pre-Raphaelite goodness), a return to the Tate Modern, the London Transport Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, the Aquarium, the Globe, Greenwich, etc., and to FINALLY make it to Camden. We've still got about 400 shows we want to see, including Grand Hotel (painfully sold out). As usually, we'll run out of time before we run out of things to do *sob* .
Today, it's sunny and I'm going to go for a walk as I have little to do at work other than write my end-of-the-year review. Tonight, we're hitting #52 with a trip to the Harvard Exit to see Bad Education, the new Almodovar movie. Yay end of the year work deadness!
