It’s grim up North… Manchester part 3

March 20, 2012
Last batch of photos of my day in Manchester.

It is indeed!

Somewhere over the rainbow….
I also went to the Manchester Art Gallery, didn’t take any photos as most of what I saw I had already seen the last time I visited it. They have a very good collection  of Pre-Raphaelite art, among other things. I had a bite to eat at the cafeteria which is always nice and pleasant even though a bit overpriced… But can’t complain as the museum is free, so it has to be paid for somehow.

The visit to the museum was extremely inspiring, and it gave me the urge to sit down and doodle. As I was feeling a bit tired from walking around all day I then decided to go back to the train station, find a notebook and sit down for some sketching until it was time for my train. So I found some mini moleskines at WHSmith and sat down at Starbucks for the sole reason that I could recharge my phone there- smart phones are great, but after a day of heavy use the batteries don’t last too long. When I took the notebooks out this is what I saw:
How hipster (I even added a filter to the photo). Ha well, the Chai Tea Latte was nice and my legs enjoyed the little rest. 

I also went to this outlet store in Picadilly during the day. I had also been there the last time and this time managed to find a fishtail parka. I had been looking for one for a year already but didn’t want to spend a humongous amount of money on, or buy something horrible from Primark… managed to get a really good one for £25… I’m glad I didn’t spend the 60 dollars in NYC the last time I saw one I liked. I’m proud of my thrifty shopping these days. Nothing too fancy, just a regular green parka:

I also got a pair of America F*** Yeah really short shorts, which I’ll probably just wear as pyjamas,or use them to do something like this. I know, I know it’s trendy and it’s tacky but I think it’s fun!

This concludes my latest visit to Manchester. Looking forward to my next trip, this time to London, at the end of this month, to hang out with friends and hopefully see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at Tate Modern. I can’t hardly wait!
