Back from a short city mini-break

Hello everyone! I am back from a few days in Manchester, which is the city where I was born and grew up, but which I left a long long time ago.

So much has changed and we walked A LOT! I am now reacquainted with the bits that still remain from my childhood and have started to get used to all the new stuff. Like the trams. And all the new buildings. And some of the old buildings which must have been there when I lived in the city (because they are Victorian!), but which were just about still in use as warehouses or factories, or which were lying empty and abandoned and thus of no interest to a teenage girl visiting the city centre in search of a new book or some clothes, or a record or some sheet music, or whatever else I had gone into town to buy.

Should be able to post more about our visit tomorrow when I've sorted out the photos. Also, just wanted to say that I have been reading LJ, but only had my phone for internet access and trying to comment using a tiny virtual keyboard is frustrating, so I have probably been quieter than usual on the comment front.
