The Barbican centre was lovely - well, parts of it anyway. Especially attractive was the area called Riverside - fountains and flats with beflowered and leaved balconies and tables and chairs so you could drink your tea, coffee, wine, etc beside the water or looking down onto it. On a lovely, sunny, fresh, uncrowded day like yesterday it was delightful and we spent some considerable time there. Hence the photos, taken, unfortunately, with my cheapo mobile so the quality is pretty poor. I just didn't have room in my bag for my camera, not wanting to overload it. Must get a more up to date, lighter weight camera. Really, really MUST!
