Belly dancing in Kilburn

Went to see Bloody Sunday: Scenes from the Saville Inquiry at the Tricycle Theatre tonight. A documentary not a drama, it's edited from the inquiry proceedings by Richard Norton-Taylor.

Walking back to Willesden Lane, an apparition! We stopped to watch the sashaying of a belly dancer through the half-darkened window of El Andsaloasse Moroccan restaurant. I dream of Jeannie.
