s1, al-andalus, aclaiir agm, seacourt tower, roots building, stowe, 18, filmscript


Heading home on the S1 bus, feeling pretty stuffed, to be quite honest, after an excellent meal at Al-Andalus tapas bar, Oxford.

Pre-AGM dinner for members of ACLAIIR (Advisory Council on Latin American and Iberian Information Resources). Last year's AGM was held at the British Library but this time it's at the Taylor Institution Library, Oxford.

Thanks a million to my colleague Joanne for organising such a great meal (and, indeed, the event tomorrow). So much scrummy food. Not to mention, lovely company.

Meanwhile, took this pic as the bus wizzed past the Seacourt Tower, a landmark that has been part of my life since 1973. In those days, pre-refurb, it was known, I think, as the Rootes Building, after the long-defunct car company. When I was a boy, Dad driving by this meant it would only be half-an-hour before I was back at Stowe School (sometimes a good thing, other times not so good).

Returning to Oxford tomorrow on the 7 am 18 RH Transport bus for the ACLAIIR AGM itself. En route I'll be working on a further rewrite of the short filmscript I collaborated on in the early spring. Getting there, hopefully.
