We woke that morning to one of the friendly and very noisy seagulls out our garret window.
|A Cardiff Seagull. I've got to look up the species under "noisy" and "annoying."|
|My wife standing on a dresser handing things down to Professor Ron's wife|
as I was lower on the stairs passing down to the bottom floor.
(They didn't trust me up high, but I did get in the attic for a bit.)
After the house was arranged, we headed out for some preliminary explorations of Cardiff led by Professor Ron and family.
|Down past Cardiff U. (We were in the University District)|
|Cardiff City Hall. Note Dragon on dome tower.|
|A nice shopping mall and the best place for wireless internet in Cardiff.|
Every time I entered my phone would start dinging with messages.
Also, this mall features as a setting in several episodes of modern Doctor Who.
|The Memorial to Dic Penderyn.|
Linda and I browsed through the market, much improved over the old jail ("gaol") site.
We began to get oriented to downtown Cardiff although it took most of the month to really figure it out. It's a beautiful city, not to big, but with plenty of historical sites and cultural opportunities. And we found a few unique treasures.
And there was the Fish Bar on the corner run by some very kind Muslim guys who served very large portions.
|Carnegie Library, Cathays, Cardiff.|
I wanted to say to the grouchy librarians, "Hey! Carnegie was our capitalist exploiter!
More Cardiff adventures on the next day!
