Tony and I in from a date night.  Not our usual Tuesday activity but we had a voucher for 2 movie tickets, bottle of bubbly and 3 tapas and today was the last day to use so we did!!  Samsara was the movie - which was like watching 2 hours of a National Geographic magazine.  Incredible photography but not a single spoken word!!! I couldn't watch the extended shots of people in rubbish tips but the various mosques, temples and cathedrals were eye dazzling as were Asian dancers.
Tony and I were both blown away by the new extensions to the Embassy - we didn't recognise it photos don't really do it justice.
Tony has a great picture of the hallway between the old and the new he might add tomorrow
