Daily Stuff -  Into London today. Went to see Julie's son, Miles, in Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre on the West End. A very nice show. Very technically dense. Its based on a Roald Dahl children's book. All of the actors were uniformly good. The set was very inventing and the staging was energetic.

It was also nice because also i  the cast was a girl, who I had taught in a summer school here years ago. She has made quite a career for herself in musical theatre.

While we were waiting for the show, Julie and I had a lovely snack at Covent Garden and afterwards, we took Miles to a Mexican restaurant by the theatre. Yes, mexican food has finally come to England! It was pretty good for the most part. Only a couple of interesting flavor choices. But the hostess was a journalism student from Texas, so she steered us towards the more authentic choices. :)

Nice to see so many Londoners taking pride in their city during the Olympics :)
