The Tate Modern

Today we visted the Tate Modern. This museum was once a power plant and is now a seven story art mecca. It's simply massive, and with so much to see, we spent a good chunk of our day here. Rothko, Rauschenburg, Richter, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Man Ray, Duchamp, we saw it all!

This is the view from the 5th floor down into the Turbine hall. The featured installation is Doris Salcedo’s Shibboleth, a chasm that stretches the entire length of the Tate's bottom floor (nearly 600 feet).

After that, we wondered about for awhile, enjoyed the city, ate fish and chips, and went back to the hotel to rest our weary legs.

Adam teaching and stuff. He'll do that from time to time.

And how about some tales from Cantebury?
