Welcome to my new home in London in the new academic year. It may sound to you crazy, but I actually enjoy living in a small space. Yes, there are both challenges and restrictions with it, but I always look at small places with embrace. Maybe that is because I grew up in a fairly small bedroom and I always enjoyed organizing and arranging my objects and things, not just so they can fit but to also look aesthetic.
It’s time to drink tea, proper British tea at 5 o’clock in the afternoon.
A tradition that has become a cult in this country. In Britain drinking tea, is not the same as ours drinking coffee, after a meal or in the morning. Tea and drinking of tea is considered a meal.
It is the same as experiencing the future, when looking back in the past. Art has that power, as well as the gallery as a space in which worlds collide, showing us the short life term of men, against the long life term of art. Most elements of the culture belong to the everyday context, but art is what we see in galleries.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Being a huge fan of cereal, when I heard that there is a café in London that only serves cereal, I had to go.
It is the largest museum of decorative and applied arts in the world. It is also one of the most challenging. The collections are stunning and of unique importance – but they span such a range of interests and cultures that it can take several visits even to begin to grasp what is there.
