Whew, Manchester is a good city. I’m back from the second whirlwind tour of the day – went inside the Town Hall (couldn’t before because there were guys hanging from ropes above the door fastening a banner advertising Irish Days [going on in Albert Square] so the door was blocked to the public), marveled at how unlike Seattle’s equivalent it is.
Went around the John Rylands library.
Happened on and went into the People’s History Museum. Went halfway across a bridge over the Irwell to Salford. Went halfway across a graceful pedestrian bridge ditto.
Happened to notice a dome not far away, went to see what it was, found the Barton Arcade.
And more. All in a couple of hours.
I like Manchester.
