Check back soon for a report of the Viking Festival I have a ticket for this Saturday.
Sunday some of us went to Windermere which is the biggest lake in the Lake District. We joined the Manchester International Society and they offer day trips for a sensible price, so we went to see the infamous beautiful lake district. And it left nothing to be desired in beauty. It was gorgeous. We had a great day going on a boat trip around the lake, have magnificent food (including wonderful chips...) from a vendor and shopping in the small american-beach-town-style town. Lots of surf shops and ice cream and candy. I even gambling a little in my first casino, and played a little air hockey with Kristin. Valient effort was made, in the end, alas, Kristin won. But it was fun. We had a very relaxing day enjoying the mild weather and a little bit of sun (something foreign to Manchester). Words can't describe, so you should look at the pictures ;o)
