So now I'm in Sheffield... I was so incredibly exhausted last night but woke after only five hours sleep. How do people sleep around here when it's not dark until 10pm and then light at some ungodly hour of the morning?! Driving to Sheffield from Manchester airport was beautiful... To see the beautiful English countryside in the flesh rather than on tv is amazing. I've seen a small portion of Sheffield this morning and can certainly see the domination of the old red brick industrial warehouses, but also the many other styles of building in the city. The Town Hall is majestic and beautiful, and then of course there's the Park hill flats in the background which can only be described as ugly!! I'm really looking forward to exploring more of the city and its surrounds in the coming days.
