So I've been wondering arroud a little bit more down-town.

Went to Trafalgar square (you know, the famous square with the pilon and the lions), spent an afternoon in the national gallery (saw paintings of Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeers, Van Gogh, Monet, Seurat, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, ..) Actually, I think a saw too many painings in one day. But I don't complain, the admission was completely free.

Afterwards I passed by Oxford street, one of the best known and biggest shopping streets in the world, with stores like selfridges etc. Not that I had anything to spend there, but still nice to pass by. They just reopened Oxford circus, and made it the first diagonally-passable circus in london. I walked it, diagonally offcourse, it was funny because people weren't used to it and kept bumping into eachother.
Ofxord street ends into west end, where all the big theatres are, including the dominion where queen's "we will rock you" has been playing for 8 years. Hope to go and see it one day.

On a school related note,
I had a practical session on Sunday morning at 6am (I must say I like late-night sessions a lot more), had some time to spare, set up some mics, recorded some guitars and vocals. Lots of fun.

For the more tech-geeky people, the vocal mic is a Neumann TLM 103 (which costs a small grand! But I didn't knew that at the time), the guitar mics are a Calrec cc01, a Neuman km84 and something from dpa. Yes I know, you'd be scared just to pick them up.
