So, I went to Manchester for the first time today. It was a work trip, and I met people I’ve been working with online, and learnt a lot and got things done. But, being a work trip, it was a long day, an early morning train trip, the shiny Manchester Piccadilly train station, a few back streets, an office block, a walk back to the train station through the dark and then two and a half hours back to London Euston.
I’ve added a pin for Manchester to my ‘Cities I’ve Visited’ map on facebook and I’ve talked to some people who live there. Beyond that, I’ve seen some very pretty Christmas lights near the station and learnt that £3.10 buys a lot more lunch in Manchester than it does in London. And I hope that I will be able to go back again.
