If you pop over and read my other blog it gives a brief outline of my trip to the UK so far.
Presently in Cornwall I have the week on site at the Eden Project to take in this amazing project.
I took so many photos today... but there is a limit to what I can download tonight sitting in the bar of the hotel I'm staying at next to an old harbour in Charlestown... not too far from the EP.
So...I have just skimmed through and resized these photos... Eden Project is even more impressive than I imagined it to be.
Really I should have taken a shot of what is there now ... from a distance... but my day was spent touring the site with someone from the creative team responsible for the way the Project is presented to the public in terms of artistic/cultural interpretations. Now I have a good idea of what the week offers ... people to meet ...places to investigate.
This is from the Tropical Biodome... I spent quite some ime walking through this amazing space.
One place that was quite a focal point was the new bakery.... the site of the weeks Cornwall Food Festival. There were demos and talks happening.
I was blown away by the size of the space and the fact the bakers work at very long wooden tables at one end of the room...
The other end of the room is where food is available.
Painting with food colours... inks made from beetroot, spirulina, turmeric, chilli and such.
I spent the late afternoon in the Library in the Foundation building.... browsing through all the titles and wishing there was time for reading!
Its very late... I have many more photos...but this at least is an introduction. Stay tuned for more on this place.
