Today was another boiler of a day.
I have begun having showers in the morning rather than night because I am more sweaty when I wake up than after a full day of doing stuff.
I decided today to go and do a bus tour for 6pound in Newcastle. Why?

... Trail took me next to City Hall, with a free tour at 2. Well attended if unexciting, the tour does at least get you behind the scenes, and into the council and function rooms. City hall itself needs little gilding, mind, being a spectacular building. As the guide helpfully explained, there were two types of marble, Italian marble, from Italy, and Greek marble, from Greece.

... shop that was going out of business (can compare to that of a Pier One) and some girls bought some things. I did not. Not worth it in my opinion. Want to spend my money on much better things. Anyway, then went to Tresco again (this is the grocery store) for some girls to pick up some stuff... I just needed to get some cold medicine as this damn cold seems to be winning at the moment.
