This will only be interesting to people who know us. (Some pictures have been removed at the request of the subjects.)
I went to the UK in April (yes, blogging late again) to see as much family as I could. The country is becoming swamped by fast food outlets – pizzerias, burgerias, sandwicherias and pastyerias on every corner and many points between.
I tried to get a taste of England while I was there: I ate a pasty on the platform of Leeds railway station, I drank warm beer in the Nailers’ Arms, took in a Builders’ Special from the greasy spoon opposite St Martin in the Bull Ring, got an excellent curry near the railway station in Bromsgrove, had a sandwich from Griggs and sampled fish and chips in the Worcestershire countryside and from Westoe Road, South Shields.
Seeing as how I’m late, here are just a few snaps to share. I want to blog in praise of Birmingham market, but will add that at a later stage.
Here are snaps.
