11th – 13th July 2017
Well, what a great time we had in London at Chris’s celebration of Oriental Culture. Our three-day trip encompassed both Chinese and Japanese banquets as well as a feast of music and visual art. It’s amazing what you can fit into three days if you really try!
We stayed, of course, at our regular hotel – the Melia White House in Great Portland Street, which proved to be as comfortable and welcoming as ever. It is starting very much to feel like home. The first excitement was our Chinese banquet, which was either a very late lunch or a very early dinner, depending on how you look at it, which enabled us to eat vast amounts of food AND still be in time for the evening concert at the Barbican.
