Liverpool

For the weekend Nick and I went to visit his friend in Liverpool for his birthday.

Let me start by talking about tickets. To get the train round trip it was 160pounds. THAT IS AROUND 240 USD. TO GO TO ANOTHER PART OF ENGLAND FOR THE WEEKEND. We got a bus that took 1.5 hours longer for 16pounds. That is a 146pound difference. A 213 USD DIFFERENCE. THAT IS HUGE. LIKE WHAT?

Anyway, we somehow managed to catch the bus and got into Liverpool around noon. Another thing about transportation: cabs in Liverpool are CHEAP. You don’t really need them anyway because you can walk almost everywhere, but if need be don’t be afraid to call/hail one. You won’t have to give up the rights to your first born child. Anyway, THIS… Liverpool Cathedral.

And this… BOMBED OUT ONE? Unfortunately there was an event going on so I couldn’t go inside. But I did see the “I ❤ Bombed Church” shirts. *creativity*

And there was a Central Perk… like I’m back in the states or something.IMG_2798

As you can see the day was BEAUTIFUL which is apparently not the usual for Liverpool (we soon learned ourselves). The rest of the day Nick and I walked through down a little down toward the docks and museums.

We start with the Liverpool Museum. It was meant for children and we really didn’t stay long.

We started walking through the docks and to the Tate Modern Art Museum. Here is where Nick declared he found my “real mother” and where I “got my scowl from”.

Not sure what’s up with this but there was a couple things about McCartney and Russia? Like Russia had their own shelf in the museum.

We walked back and it was dark by then. The bombed out cathedral was beautifully lit up…

We went out for Nick’s friend’s birthday and I got a pizza with half beef curry and half chili. The chili pizza may have been one of the most amazing things I’ve ever tasted.

The next day it poured down at a nice heavy, steady pace. We stayed inside until our past back to London.
