Leonardo,queuing and a surprise
Firstly the queuing experience was remarkably enjoyable! I arrived at 9am and didn't get my tickets till 12.05-and that for a timed entry at 2.30pm!! But the company around me just made the time fly by.
Firstly there was Chris. he was there when I arrived and was rather gently remonstrating with a 'queuing official'. "You've no idea how angry I am", he repeated several times. The dear chap had got up at 4 am, or was it 3am? and caught the bus from Bristol. He knew he would que but didn't realise it would be for a timed ticket for later in the day. Having offloaded on the official he then phoned his wife and repeated that she had no idea how angry he was. I couldn't help but comment to him that for someone unspeakably angry he seemed very calm. "not on the inside" he corrected me. He proved to be a splendid que companion.
And Leonardo? Yep impressive. He loved human beings and to paint the human form and grapple with displaying the emotions. The surprise? I think I enjoyed the queuing as much as the exhibition! My dear daughters already think I'm odd and if they read that last sentence it will confirm their diagnosis. But real live human beings are certainly as interesting as the Leonardo's drawings and paintings
