Saturday I spent exploring Sheffield with Mariam, another girl on the tour. We found the inner part of the city and found various shops and other interesting places that are foreign to the typical Australian marketplace. After a couple hours of exploring and shopping, we finally returned back to the accommodation.
Sunday was a day spent talking to family and friends, as well as finding out more information about the various of places that we are going to visit this week.Upon reflection, I find it interesting not only how different stores in Britain, but also the difference of price. Items such as food seem to be a lot cheaper than the stuff that you might find in an Australian supermarket. Also, aside from markets there seems to be only a small amount of fresh fruit and vegetables available to the British public at supermarkets. I will admit that I did find this to be an interesting thing when thinking of it in comparison to the ‘traditional’ Australian supermarket.
All in all this week has been a much needed break! :-)
