Charrette is not my name. It's a French design term meaning, in essence, "an intense meeting of the minds". And after all, isn't that what we do here? (Thanks for stopping by, and contributing your ideas. That makes being here all the more worthwhile.)
Today real life finally caught up with us. We spent most of the day in the flat, changing sheets, paying bills, returning emails, preparing lessons, making travel arrangements. It turns out that even in the "Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea" there are also mundane things that take place. :)
In the evening we took the tube to Piccadilly Circus and saw the musical JerseyBoys. The sound mix wasn't very good, but the characters are interesting and the music is a lot of fun. I had no idea Frankie Valli was responsible for so many great hits of the 60s and 70s. Language warning.
Piccadilly Circus is a night life hot spot—felt a little like Times Square in New York. We had a great time just walking through the neighborhood, soaking up the energy.
