London calling

I spent 6 days in London.
By myself...

Had a lot of time to walk and drink coffee. Visit museum, and oke, do a little shopping, and my god, I finally had time to think, I can't share all my thoughts here, but it felt quite liberating to spend a few days without my loved boyfriend A. and loved baby A. (being back home again was also nice...)

Luckily I had plannend some social activities as well, my friend Kim lives in London and she took me to a ´new and undiscovered´ neighbourhood (at least by the hordes of tourists) Dalston and Stoke Newington. Which were both faboulous, but I planned to only show you some pics of a small and nice museum on the South Bank: The Fashion and Textile Museum. It had a exhibition on the Rebozo, a mexican scarf. I learned all there was to know about it, and made pictures about everything else in the museum... I just love Mexican folklore. Actually anykind of folklore.

This is a screenshot of an app that helps you get from point A, to point B. It's called Citymapper and it's free. It shows you which ways of public transport you can use, or how long it takes if you walk, or take a car. It even has a funny extra choice of transport: teleporter or catapult. 

The flyer showed a picture of Frida Kahlo, on of my favourite female artists, so I hoped to see a lot of her, or her work. There was a huge papier maché sculpture of her and Diego, but not much more on her... 

It was beautifully made, though!
With pretty details.

Detail of a painting.

I loved the way things were displayed, and that it wasn't only rebozo's that were displayed, but also old photos, paintings an new designers and their vision on the rebozo.

I did my best to read all there was, and watch all the video's on how the are made. And I managed to spent an hour there... It is really a small museum. But a truly charming one.
