The Olympic Games 2012 (1)
by Santiago Fabré de Balanzó
The universal event of excellence of this year are the Olympics of London 2012. Mar and me will go. I just checked the list of cheap flights and there is an increbible offer. We fly to Gatwick Airport . We will go to London to atttending th Olympic Games. We will stay in the house of friends, near the Hyde Park. Mar normally flies for longer stays to the capital of London due to her work. I have a fantastic guide to enjoy the Olympic meeting.
Our idea is to follow the performances of the Balearic sportsmen: Rafa Nadal and Nuri Llagoestera in tennis, Sete Benavides in canoeing, Melanie Costa in swimming… Furthermore, we want to participate in the final of the athletics in the Olympic Stadium of London. I am also interested to get to know the sculpture Arcelor Mittal Orbit of the grand Anish Kapoor. I am already following him quiet a long time. I think that I saw him for the first time in the end of the ninetieths; it was his work in the CAPC de Burdeos. I am fascinated of the Anglo-Indian sculpture. The exhibition in the past year in the museum of Guggenheim in Bilbao was amazing.
When I accompanied Mar the last time on her business travel, it is not even a month ago, I could visit the artistic production of the city: Hirst and La Tate, the last Hockney… On this travel, I will concentrate myself on gastronomy, design and fashion. I have the intention to visit the exhibition “British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age” in the Victoria and Albert Museum; enjoy the Sketch, the thing that was built by Mourad Mazouz and Pierre Gagnaire. Here, you can eat, drink and examine the art and design: the interior is the work of the new Martin Greed. Besides, I want to study the design of the restaurant “The Collection” of Tom Dixon. Also visit the Libby Seller's Gallery, walking around the Soho...
