London calling

Belgravia, Bloomsbury, Marylebone, Fitzrovia... these are some of my favorite names of London areas. Bloomsbury being my favorite place to stay. I will be there again soon, and I have to say I'm pleased to be leaving the snow and winter boots behind and hopefully soak up some London spring.

When there, I am planning to see these exhibitions:

Bridget Riley at The National Gallery (click here for more info on the show).

Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A. (Click here for more info.)

More on all of this later (amongst other things). Meanwhile, I feel it's time to get in the right London spirit by watching an episode or two of Jeeves and Wooster. Rather.

PS. I wish I could have been there for this as well:

It looks fantastic. Next year, perhaps?
See more here.

Hey Janne, did you grow up in the UK or study or work there for a while? You seem very British-Norwegian to me, just from reading your blog....!
