Another Soiree...

28 June 2010

I'm back from Marrakesh and back to reality with a bump. I've got lots to do with a dissertation to write and of course an update on my Moroccon adventure. I'm still waiting for some friends to upload some holiday snaps so bear with me and I can get my holiday post together!

Until then, here are some pics from the Art History Soiree I attended a few weeks ago. While I don't study Art History anymore, I have several friends who still do and some are even progressing to a PhD in October. So I still have a fair few links to my old University department and it's nice escaping the Business School and returning to the 1930s grade II building I know all too well!
