    MG, check out the Satay Bar & restaurant in Brixton. I ate there earlier this year when I went UK for my grandmother funeral (soon come with the trip report). The food is great...we had the lunch special.

    Would love to hear any suggestions, recommendations, tips, etc.
    There is an exhibition of historical black fotos...I need to find time to go to it.

    A nice exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery....Pangea emerging Latin american and African modern artists.. There is also Cuban Ballet Revolution on at the Peacock Theatre...nice dance moves little Narrative...they have a combination of ballet and modern club music... Best bit is a Concerto de Arajuez....dance. I think Carlos Acosta might be dancing in Don Quioxte next week....

    kids and i are fans of english shows/movies, so we have long heard about beef vindaloo, which apparently is created-in-england specialty, impossible to find in toronto. it's top of our list of things to eat in london.
