Summer is here I think. We’ve been quite lucky in London as we haven’t had overly amounts of rain the last few weeks (just a couple of days) unlike last year when the whole place seemed to be constantly under deluge. I am fortunate that since moving in April, I now overlook a lovely little park where kids play, people walk their dogs and people like me run in circles in a desperate effort to get some exercise. There’s also a bowling club so almost every day there is some kind of activity going on.
We have also got all the summer screenings and outdoor cinemas going as well (Somerset House, Barbican, City Hall) which are all great fun, when the weather holds. But the outdoor event I am most looking forward to once more this year is getting down to the Open Air Theatre down at Regents Park to see Romeo and Juliet. It’s a place I had always wanted to visit and finally managed to see “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” there last year, it was absolutely enchanting, especially as we saw it on Midsummer’s night.
This year Romeo and Juliet apparently has some salsa bits with it so I am hoping the season won’t finish before I manage to get there.
