Brighton, the Oscars and a Bar Mitzvah!

I took the train to Brighton and was absolutely surprised and amazed with the city. I stayed at The Lanes Hotel and had a sea front room, with a man standing on the balcony! Problem was, he never moved‎!.

I visited the Pavilion, George the Third’s summer house, where he kept his mistresses. I had never heard of this palace before, but this is one of the best palaces I have seen. I walked into the dining hall and just said WOW! Massive Chinese and Indian influences. The King had never travelled to those places. Apparently, at the end of his life he became too fat to sit in any of the beautiful chairs he had collected from around the world.

I was also invited by Clergy to be part of a discussion group at the University of Sussex.

 Watching the Academy Awards was quite an adventure! I was flying to Toronto morning after Oscars, show started about 1.30 am (UK time), didn’t sleep, watched the red carpet on my laptop. Award show wasn’t on TV, couldn’t stream without the right app, and the car was picking me up at 3.30 am from Cambridge to drive to Heathrow Airport, which takes about 90 minutes. So I called my driver Steve, he came to the rescue with a tablet and the oscars all set up. THANKS STEVE! Also big thanks  to my friend, Meredith, who kept me informed every step of the way!! Movies are an addiction for me.

I was delighted with the Moonlight win, very real and edgy!!

Am on my way to Toronto for 6 days to attend Bar Mitzvah of Dawson, my grandson. He’s a great kid, he makes me very proud! Then I am back in Cambridge for 4 days and off to Germany to spend a few days with my friend, Denise, at new BK retreat centre!
