So we arrived in Manchester yesterday at around 17:00. ( i have to get used to this 24 hour clock thing!!) We basically checked into our hostel, had a nap , and then went to the local TESCO METRO to buy groceries. It's so exciting.... we get to cook!!! i miss that.
Anyways. last night for supper we had chicken and spaghetti with tomato and cheese sauce. Then we went to bed.
This morning, however, we slept in (only till 9:30ish though) showered, ate a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs with cheese and toast and peanut butter, and headed to the city of Manchester!
We went to Oxfam street, which is basically a whole street devoted to vintage clothing stores, record shops, and some other really weird places. One shop was entirly devoted to condoms. it weirded me out. and no, we didn't go in.

We found some really cool stuff and awesome books in a few stores though. andi bought one. (here comes your gift lewy! lol) then we headed to the Manchester cathedral to check it out. Its a really nice building actually, but its in the middle of a huge shopping complex and a bunch of glass buildings. it looked a little out of place.
Then, we headeed to a place called ... crap i can't remember. but it was a glass building, and you basically go up each level to see different cities and what it's like to be in different ones. It was cool. and they had this indoor play area... oh it was fun!!!! they had this grassy-like stuff that was so soft... and a video of kids melting pop cans to make imprints of their hands and feet to decorate the park that they were building. And they had a ball-pit type thing. It was joyous!
They also had these pictures where they set up miniscule people and things on the streets of manchester... and took pictures. I snapped a few photos myself. They were jsut so bizarre. then we headed back to the hostel to put away our stuff and take a quick breather.
We went out to a store called Primark (it's kindof like out walmart, but just clothes) and absolutely everybody shops there. its insane. we just looked though. it was way too crowded. Then we came back to the hostel, read some books, borrowed family guy and dodgeball to watch in the TV room with some other people, and ate supper. Now im updating my blog and drinking some tea. Oh! and i made spaghetti and a peanut soy sauce for dinner. wasnt bad, considering i had a limited number of ingredients. well i should go. my internet time is almost expired!!! stay tuned for scenes from our next episode!
