Newcastle is quite a small city. The more central you go the more traditional it becomes. Wide streets were highly unpopulated with morning traffic and made me feel like a Sunday morning rather than a mid-week chaos!
Welcome, welcome, welcome! This was my most anticipated part of the trip to Manchester. I behaved, I promise. That's only because my favourite cat was sitting as close to the ceiling as he possibly could throughout the whole visit.
What I'm really trying to say in this title is that Manchester is a city that is confusing, compelling and full of contradictions. The architecture reminds me of the 80s and yet again I can see glimpses of modern ideas shining through. Efforts to build the city can be seen everywhere.
