A: our Hotel in Venice
This morning I cried.
I was sitting at my desk and I read something that brought me to tears. Happy tears! But I was lachrymose all the same.
The Tate Modern is hosting an exhibition of Yayoi Kusama from 9 February - 5 June. From 4 April - 9 September they are hosting an exhibition of Damien Hirst.
So for the 8 nights I am in London, my favourite city in the world, my favourite gallery in the world is hosting exhibitions by two of my favourite artists.
It's like they know I'm coming home for a visit. They're putting on a show.
I was so happy I cried.
Also, this morning I was trawling lastminute.co.uk looking for deals on accommodation - just the other day I found a well-reviewed hotel in Primrose Hill for the price we were going to pay for a shared-facilities hostel room! - and found, to my shock and delight, a rather budget but very well-reviewed hotel in Venice.
It's kind of close to St Mark's square. Sort of. About 150 metres. No big deal.
