pink and mint puppet

Yesterday I got to do some of the things I love: eat, laugh and learn. Unlike today, yesterday London was given the gift of sun. So, this was the first plus for Sunday.

We first went to the May Fayre and Puppet Festival in Covent Garden, which is the oldest Puppet Festival in Europe. There were puppet shows from all over Europe, from Switzerland to Germany, to Sweden or Norway. I even got the chance to have some "Pastéis de Nata" and "Brigadeiros" in a Portuguese/Brasilian stall, which was one of the high moments of the day - Gosh, how I miss Portuguese pastry! Here are the photos for you!

We then went to the "Picasso Prints: The Vollard Suite" exhibition, which takes place in the British Museum until September 2nd. It was quite interesting and we got to understand Rembrandt's influence in Picasso's work, as well as the influence of Greek mithology, with the presence of characters such as the Minotaur. The relationship between the artist and his models is also represented and what I found most shocking were the prints under the theme of "Rape" - probably because that's the woman's scariest nightmare. The pictures for you:
