Saturday 6 Nov, stotting about the back streets of Blundell Sands courtesy of a co-incidence with reasons I won’t bore you with, but close to Antony Gormley’s Another Place at Crosby Beach (Sinclair and Petit did a silly commercial roadmovie and came here) – got dropped off at Lime street and had 90 mins to discover Liverpool centre around chinatown again. By this time it was raining but didn’t matter. Took my time and well worth getting wet.

Love to hear from anyone from Merseyside who’s reading this. Now reading Orwell’s The Road to Wigan Pier. I will be back – lovely people those Livers though, aren’t they though.
