Visited last night and was pretty impressed.  West End not as good as last time as mainly projections onto buildings but the one at Royal Academy with music and Piccadilly Circus very good.  But no elephant stealing the show this time.  Fitzrovia had a favourite with light puddles and sounds and ones you can touch to change the light direction.  But behind Kings X the best with the blue mist of lights and dry ice machines turning the square into something quite magical.  Behind it are several others including a field of lights.   Ends Sunday 10.30pm but if short of time head to Kings X.  Or Canary Wharf which has a totally different light show, Winter Lights, until Jan 26th, Saturday evening.

Visited the newish Postal Museum yesterday and took a trip on the mail train that ran under London for many years moving our letters around, avoiding the busy streets.  It was decommissioned a few years ago and is now open for the public to take a 20 minute trip down the tunnels.   The museum itself seems to be very much aimed at children.  Disappointment was that I designed a postage stamp of myself with a crown and a moustache but it didn’t turn up in my email!

Not as good as it usually is – no Yayoi Kusama but then no attacks by squirrels either, so swings and roundabouts.  Until next year ….

Somehow missed that the fourth plinth had been filled again back in March.  But was passing by the other day and took a quick photo.  The Gift Horse, by Hans Haacke, has an LED bow with a ticker of London stock prices tied around the neck of the skeleton. Having googled it, it is seen as a symbol of the excesses of the City and the current austerity measures.
