London: Russian Criminal Tattoo exhibition

We were lucky! Saturday was the last day of this small exhibition. I found it online, accidentally. This weekend was really windy and rainy. Perfect weather for exhibitions. Next to this very interesting one, we went to see Yoshitomo Nara's art.

London: Highgate Cemetery

Are you tired of the crowded touristic places in London? We were. So we spent our Saturday in a quite place - a cemetery. And not just an ordinary one. Highgate Cemetery is absolutely magical. 

The cemetery was part of the Magnificent Seven project (other six cemeteries around London - Kensal Green Cemetery, West Norwood Cemetery, Abney Park Cemetery, Nunhead Cemetery, Brompton Cemetery, Tower Hamlets Cemetery), from the first half of the 19th century. There are around 170 000 people buried here, some famous - Karl Marx's grave is very popular, it took us few minutes to take a picture as there were many fans taking pictures and posing.
