Two years ago, Stephanie and I found the cafe in the Victoria and Albert Museum. I was “starving,” and when I am hungry, I want to eat! So, off we went with our friend June Gibson following along, to find something to eat. We followed the signs on the main floor of the V&A and suddenly BANG. I forgot about being hungry when I saw the rooms which were known as the cafe. The fabulous Morgan times were everywhere–I had never seen anything like it ever before. It was dazzling. After I recovered from my shock, we proceeded to the meals that were being offered. I couldn’t believe my eyes: lamb, turkey, chicken, beef, salads, cakes, vegetables, on a on. It was fabulous, to say the least. I certainly got full, but my eyes were still dancing, enjoy the exquisite beauty around me.
This trip, I went to study the jewel collection and especially to see Napoleon’s emerald necklace which was a gift to Josephine. I remembered the cafe, and decided I was hungry for a full lamb shank dinner with roasted potatoes and vegetables, all covered with gravy. I knew I would be home soon and would be subjected to restricted eating, so I went for it. I collected my meal and took a table next the grand piano where a young man was playing MOZART. As I was enjoying my lunch with great job, I suddenly realized that the music I was hearing was not being played by an amateur. I slowed down my rushing through my meal and became enthralled by the music I was hearing. If anyone out there and is needing a music teacher, a concert pianist, or an evening job, I highly recommend this young man: HARRY NOWAKOWSKI, “Classical Pianist and Teaher” +44 (0) 7878 666 525 www.harrynowakowski.com (available for concerts, recitals, private functions and piano tuition) I was eager to let people know about this young man. I gave him a tip of 5 pounds, and you would have thought I had given him the Bank of England. I am sure this young man’s love of his music is greater than his need for wealth and fame. I loved the moments there.
