Portabello Market and St. Martin in-the-Fields

The great Saturday market on Portabello street

Later, at St. Martin in-the-Fields, near
Covent Garden

Dinner in the crypt

Good food, but kind of creepy...

For a church,the acoustics were good, and the orchestra
excellent; but the conductor evidently had a 9:30
engagement; we heard the overture to Figaro, Schubert's
Unfinished Symphony, the last movement of Beethover's
9th (not on the program), and then all of Beethoven's 5th,
between 7:30 and 9:08, with a long intermission...
