Today we walked to the Barbican Centre for visiting an exhibition and watching a movie. When we arrived to the Barbican, they told that the conservatory -which is the second largest in London- is open today to the public visit. After buying our exhibition and cinema tickets, we visited first the conservatory which has a collection of tropical plants, a cage with colorful birds and a small pond with huge fishes inside.
Then we visited “Everything Was Moving” , a very nice photo exhibition with 400 documentary photos from 60’s and 70’s from all around the world. After the exhibition we had a lunch in Barbican Food Court, lunch was regular but the dessert was the best we ate untill today in London. Almond and pear tart and pistachio polenta cake were delicious! We were so surprised because in London they just don’t know what is “dessert”.
After the lunch we watched in Barbican’s Cinema “On the Road“, the movie which is based on the Jack Kerouac’s cult novel On the Road and it was a really successful adaptation. After the movie we made a short visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral to see Occupy London protestors who were expressing their selfs in the middle of the sunday pray. And for the dinner we tried one of the small Thai restaurants in our neighborhood. What a lovely sunday!
