Thank you. Art, food, roaming around. Leeds rules.
Finally getting to actually eat things I've seen blogged for ages. You can practically walk on this cream and it was delicious. Innocent drinks are great. Expensive, but worth it. I plan to try all the flavours. Last night we had TRIFLE for dessert and I'm having some for breakfast. why not?
This hedgehog is the only one I've seen so far, and he wasn't looking too good.
Yorkshire is amazing--from glacial escarpments to low green hills. Yesterday we went from fairyland to tough glacial scars. Amazing tour guide we have.
We got off the plane, and Viv whisked us away to the Lowry and the War Museum. A good decision. The Lowry and surrounding area is full of eye candy architecture.
'The Crystal' is one of the most complex constructions ever. I never saw so many laptops on a site. Satellite mapping of the site before construction, no right angles, titanium shell. Almost finished.
workers are all tied onto the building, like mountaineers.
'The Crystal' is something for which everyone has an opinion.
I like it. A lot.
Just checking. got the money, the maps, the flights, the tube map, the dates. my favourite jeans developed a hole in the left leg today and no one has 501 Levi 28/30s around.
will viv have the bathroom ready by the time we get there? what tiles will she use? what is the alcohol content of your beer? what if I get lost on the tube? how do you turn right at an intersection if you are driving on the wrong side of the road?
I am overwhelmed by your kindness, but I wonder, are you real? Are you all some cyber figment I needed to create for myself? We are held together by such little wires.
think I am getting a little anxious.
