W came over for a co-working session in the evening, then we went out for dinner, at a sort of Indian restaurant. Actually a real mix: Japanese food, Indian (tandooring chicken, naan), Chinese (soup dumplings, chow mein), Thai (things I hadn't heard of.) It was decent, not the best place for soup dumplings.
She noticed that my street had mosaics of animal heads in it: goat, bear, elephant, bunny, pig... I'll post photos later.
