cannot believe the changes to kings cross, each month that i visit there are more and more buildings going up and events happening. last night robert and i went to investigate the new pond club – a temporary art installation that you can swim in! its open in the day and i am pondering whether i am daring enough to brave the cold! you can climb up to the nearby viewing point and take a peak! there is also the wonderful skip garden – a portable garden that uses the available land between the building sites and cranes of kings cross -it produces fruit and vegetables that are used in the skip kitchen cafe – definitely on my list of things to do. there are so many new restaurants around granary square, caravan, the greek larder, the grain store and the newly opened dishoom. couldn’t believe the queue in the pouring rain for dishoom. we ate one course at the grain store, which has a very strange menu, very vegetable based, but to be honest it felt like an airport or department store restaurant, nothing very special.
