Seeing Dubai and having most of the travel out of the way, I’ve started getting excited for Sheffield. I’m looking forward to seeing the city as a whole, the layout of suburbs and the style of houses and residential developments in particular. I think downtown Sheffield or its CBD will also be interesting I would like to learn the most about Sheffield’s industry, especially modern Sheffield after the decline from its famous steel industry and high rise housing estates from the 1960s and 70s that cured the city from slums. Most of all, I’m keen to see some of the pubs in the UK and have a few beers with some locals.
