And we're finally back! I am happy to say that Kathy and I saw "Victoria and Abdul" at the Promenade Theater and loved it! It was an excellent study on friendship between two very different people about 100 years ago in a very different time and place. A young man in India who was teaching prisoners was chosen to present a medal to Queen Victoria because he was tall and he is accompanied by another short Indian man who was a replacement for someone else., .and the drama begins! I learned that in England when the Queen stops eating, everyone is done and plates are quickly removed so the secret is "eat fast!" And never make eye contact with the Queen! Of course, Abdul does and a relationship develops as he teaches her Urdu and becomes her "mesoul". All the Englishmen (esp. Prince Albie) hate him and make every attempt to get rid of him, but he is with her as she makes her transition. This movie gave me a lot to think about both in terms of relationships and international cultures.

Then we had dinner at Mr. Crab Seafood House at the Cedar Crest and Tilghman Sts. Shopping Center which was a disappointment. No ambiance, brightly lit and more of a sushi place with seafood entrees! Mine was okay since it was a seafood dinner, and I might go back with my daughter to guide me on sushi choices. Kathy was very disappointed with her choice and would not go back.
