Take Stu. Stu picked us up this morning to take us to our VAN and it turns out he's from Cambridgeshire. He came out on a boat as a six/seven year old, 50 odd years ago which took about four weeks. I'm from Cambridgeshire and I made a long boat trip at about the same age, but to Singapore.
And, it's a funny thing, yesterday I got into conversation with the guide at the Auckland art gallery. I wanted to know where the best place is to see maori work. It turns out he's a printmaker and his tutor's a printmaker. She did her MA at the Slade, she wanted to study in London because the biggest collection of Maori artefacts . . . . . is in the British Museum. I'm a printmaker . . . . . . me and unknown Maori guy talk too long, Chris looses interest and disappears.
