Here you'll find some personal notes I took during my trip.
I didn't really write this to be read by others, but you can take a look if you like. This is about what happened in London during the week or so I was there.
*Diary written between September and October of 2000
London Diary: Day 6 - Finally, Liverpool!The city which gave birth to The Beatles, Liverpool, is also famous as an arts town. From Manchester to Liverpool it's about a 1 hour bus ride, just a short trip.
Liverpool was a little different from Manchester, in that as you approach Liverpool you really get the feeling that you are entering a city.
Next I stopped by the place where all Beatles fans go, the Cavern Club. Before heading there, I went to a Beatles shop where I saw some photos of John and a few of his drawings, and wrote my name in the guest book. It was October 1st. If you visit within the next half year, you'll be able to find my signature.
I went from the city centre to the bay, where I had afternoon tea and took a short breather. Up until then I had been walking continually, so my stomach was quite empty, making this seem like a luxurious break.
The tea was delicious. Undoubtedly, if I had the same tea again in Japan it wouldn't be nearly as delicious. In the area surrounding the bay there were cafes and shops crowded together. The clothing and fashion item stores exhibited excellent taste, much better than that of those found in Odaiba. The prices were also low, so I quite recommend shopping here.
The cookies I bought were delectable. They were fresh out of the oven, warm and soft. I ate them slowly, thinking this was definitely not something I would ever be able to eat in Japan.
Near the bay there is also a Beatles museum. I just took a quick look at the shops in the entrance area. I'm not sure what's on display there, but I think I'll take a better look next time I'm in England.
