Completely unrealistic

After dinner I went for a quick stroll around the plein to look for the Australian Ice Cream shop - tragically closed - and to look at the cathedral - ditto. Very dramatic and the new camera seems to do rather nicely at night shots. And looking in the window of a gift shop - as I do - I spotted a triptych of 'hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil'. But this was three cats, siamese at that. Preposterous!

Also odd: the sculptures in the lobby by one Avi Kenan ( A dancer smothered by her shawl and the flounces of her skirt, a horse swathed in the rider's cloak, a Buddha draped by a cloth. There's a lot of movement, some lovely lines but also something ludicrous - think a horse having a fight with a rug.

Possibly because I registered for a Hilton card to get the surmiles I'm in an executive room the size of our lounge with free mineral water and lavendar water body oil!

Introduced more people to the immortal phrase from an old Future magazine, the bathos of Swindon. Bed now as we have a horribly early start.
