Last night we treated ourselves to an evening of culture. The Horned Dorset Primavera Hotel, our local Relais & Chateaux resort right here in Rincón, was holding an event to commemorate this year’s 200 anniversary of Joseph Haydn‘s death (for some reason, the folks over at the HD decided to call it a 200th birthday celebration, but hey, we’re all about the facts here at nickandmiri!).

The evening included appetizers on the lovely veranda overlooking the sea, following by a string quartet concert, featuring Haydn’s music of course. We then enjoyed a lovely 4 course meal. All in all, very civilized!

To our surprise, Björk, Icelandic avant-garde singer-songwriter, composer, actress and music producer extrodinare, was in attendance. Seems she is in our neck of the woods for a while, recording her latest album. Of course, I couldn’t resist personally welcoming Björk to our little town and inviting her and her entourage to my pottery studio, should they feel like a bit of a break from the recording studio. Hey, wouldn’t you love to have Björk in YOUR studio??? I’m not gonna be waiting by the phone but how cool would that be? Boy would I love to see what she’d make!
