So it seems comfort reigns especially when you are spending hours walking around a dusty, dirty site searching for artistic treasures among the many national pavilions. This particular hour seemed especially daggy and I’m not sure where the trendy artsy folk have disappeared to!? Does an older crowd justify poorer fashion decisions? Unfortunately I can’t do a nationality breakdown- would have been quite interesting to dissect the results. Also I’m not going to judge these people because I know how easy it is to let it all slide when on holiday…!
