Today I went to see Nadia. She is doing fine and showed me her new wig. She looks good with it. I tried it on and looked like Elton John. Well, I have the round face and glasses.

Max went to his usual Saturday German class in the morning. He is getting better at German.

Later in the afternoon we went with friends, Alan and Christine to Southbank. We saw at Royal Festival Hall the "World Press Photo Exhibition" of press images covering the main news events of 2002. It was very depressing.

World Press Photo of the Year 2002 is a black & white picture of an earthquake in Qazvin. In the photograph a young boy clings on to his dead father's trousers as he squats by the grave where his father is about to be buried. The picture was taken in June 2002, after the earthquake struck Qazvin in northwest Iran, killing more than 500 people in some 12 villages. Here is the picture:
