We reached Cardiff after about an hour and a half drive and found the hostel no problem. We checked into the fortress as we call our hostel as it seems to be in a dodgy part of town
We moved on to Cardiff castle for a tour. It was ... Well a castle with much history.
We then went in search of the bay as once again it was a sunny afternoon. We sampled some local beers by the wharf and then some more on the main strip downtown. We stopped for something to eat and we saw our first vegetables since arriving. I was actually excited and ordered s "mixed green salad with french dressing on the side of my sandwich (see picture). I think they must be ignored in the English diet.
We sat in a pub from six until ten just people watching and it was incredible! Apparently everyone is required by law to dress up in some sort of costume before they go out on a Saturday night. We saw pirates, cowboys, sailors, and about a dozen stagette parties. It doesn't matter how old, young, tall, short, big, or small you are no one holds back in sassing themselves up. Very confident people!
We had never felt so modestly dressed in our lives!
Off to the Cotswolds!
