So, despite my natural desire to dislike the place due to very childish football type rivalries, I really found myself really enjoying it ! The attached photos might be slightly dull, but hopefully help you see some of its different faces, or at least the few I managed to discover in such a short space of time.
There´s also a load of pictures from the various activities for Herdy´s birthday... Which generally involved eating and drinking, although we also went to see Argentina vs Puma´s rugby international on Saturday. The day before his birthday we were a bit over excited when we saw U2 posters up advertising a gig the following evening ... Although I had visions of us getting to see the boys as a great birthday bonus for Herdy, sadly it turned out to be a tribute band. We went and got tickets for it anyway, as it was in a decent sized venue and sounded like it would be an entertaining evening - which it was. An interesting observation is that the IT age has clearly hit home, because instead of waving their cigarette lighters when a slow tune was being played, everyone was waving their mobile phones in the air instead ... !?!
