While I sometimes complain about how isolated Torquay feels, Bristol is actually only two hours away by train. Last week I took advantage of this and traveled up for a night to see Bridget Christie (and others) at the Bristol Comedy Garden. On the heels of Brexit, the comedy was of course very political.
While I wasn’t sold on the first act, I had a great time. I really love the city for its size, energy and beauty, and I can’t wait to visit again soon.
As mentioned in previous posts, I also went to London a few weeks back.In addition to touring libraries in London, I visited with some high school friends. We managed to pack a LOT into four days.
First, we went to a concert at the KOKO, which was so much fun.
Since it was my friend’s first time in England, we also visited a lot of museums, including the Tate Modern and British Museum. My favorite was the Natural History Museum, where we went to a late night event and watched people sing/dance around the dinosaurs while drinking wine and eating cupcakes.
