Fun in London, with art and Chinese food

Today Paul, Mikey and I went to the Serpentine gallery in Hyde Park and saw some really amazing light-based art by Anthony McCall (see pic below for example of his work). It was very cool.

Then we went to the Tate Modern and I saw some great art by William Kentridge and Kara Walker.

Above is a detail of Kara Walker’s breath-taking silhouettes, Grub for Sharks: A Concession to the Negro Populace, currently on display at Tate Modern. We saw some great art of hers last year at the Venice Biennale.

After our art galleries, we went to a restaurant in Chinatown and had dinner.

I looked up at the specials on the wall and was a little intrigued by the one on the right…

£9.80 of Whatever? Would that be vegetarian, do you think?
