I’m at the RGS.
Tonight’s talk –
The fascinating story of discovering and excavating the ship wreck of the Esmeralda, from Vasco da Gama’s 1502-1503 voyage, shedding new light on Portuguese maritime trade and warfare in the Indian Ocean.
Good to see Toby last night, and my deepest sympathies go to his family.
On Thursday Stella and I saw a play – Time and the Conway’s It’s about a family, and charts the journey from youthful optimism to the realities of life and the crap way it can actually work out.
It resonated ever so strongly with me, I have to say.
