One Normal Day
A Giant Elephant and a Nine Metre Little Boy
Friday, 5th May, 2006  - Alice Normal

Last weekend, I was on the phone making a coffee date with a friend when he asked me if I had seen the elephant yet.

"What elephant?" I ask

"The Giant Elephant, and the nine metre little boy." he replies calmly. I am thinking maybe we shouldn't meet for coffee. "It is too complicated, I'll tell you when I see you." he offers.

Well by now you would all know that London fell in love with a giant elephant and a nine metre little boy marionette this weekend. "The Sultans Elephant" constructed by Royal de Luxe of metal and wood moved through London, just like a real elephant.

Once it was explained to me that it was the world's largest piece of free art, it all made sense. Although I don't know why I couldn't have been told that over the phone. I tubed it down Trafalgar Square way, and just followed the people until I saw the giant elephant walking among the masses, operated by I guess puppeteers, it looked like a real elephant. I watched the little boy get into his spaceship and take off, I along with everyone else fell in love with the giant elephant. I didn't cry like my friend did though... what a baby.


A regular update of wines we've found interesting and a few we'd rather forget more...
