Last night I went with Pj to a dinner party/birthday party for one of her course-mates. Karin is an austrian dancer who founded a very successful dance company (Ricochet) in London for a number of years and is now taking a break while she completes the masters course at Central. Karin is married to an Israeli businessman who is a gem. We gathered upstairs in a lovely gastro-pub in Primose Hill complete with chandeliers and tulips. It was sort of a ridiculous night as we conversed with people and artists from all over the place. (After every course the fellows had to move down the table). I talked with a young friend of the family who just completed his service for the Israeli military, a women who runs Leaders Quest that takes business people all over the world, a swedish photographer/video artist, and a Taiwanese dancer married to an Italian mathematician. It was quite surreal and another reminder that the world condenses in London with intensity. As well, I think that Obama went 8-8 out of the people I talked to.
