When you first go in you’re in this big area with plants all up the poles…
All sorts of mustards and pickles.
I really liked how they displayed all their olives here.
Like I said, there were delicacies from France, Turkey, England and lots of other places.
All the different flavours of Turkish Delight! I had some traditional rose, as well as vanilla, pomegranate, peach and an orange and cloves flavour!
Game and seafood is on offer.
Pheasants and boar.
The biggest asparagus I have ever seen!
We kept walking only a few more metres before we saw these lovely views of the Millennium Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tate Modern.
Obviously the Tate Modern is inside an old power station, we were a bit confused when we first went in as to where all the art was!
We figured it out in the end though (the galleries are up and to the sides) so we wandered around the free galleries for a while. Some of it was good (there were some original Picasso pieces), but as a lot of it is very modern art it sometimes seems a bit odd…
Dead birds pierced by arrows against this drawing on the wall…
Is that poo on the ground?
Russian Communist propaganda posters.
A Dali! My favourite bit 🙂
The website for the Tate is here. Don’t let my ambivalence stop you though, by this time Nicola and I were both getting sore feet and were hungry so started feeling a bit ‘cultured out’ at this point, so we headed into Leicester Square and had a very late lunch at TGI Fridays!
I’ve never been to a TGIs, so it was pretty fun. We both had yummy burgers (vegetarian for Nicola) and chips. The dessert menu also looked amazing but we were too full to fit any in! I guess I’ll have to go back another time 😉
