How nice of they to come

I am delighted that my relatives who live in London come to Manchester to see us. We sent e-mail to let them know that we are leaving Manchester and back to Japan in a few week. Then, they called us back so as to say that they come to our flat to say good-bye. It is very kind to visit us before leaving.

They bring us many interesting things. First of all, they give me Natto which I hoped to eat for long years. The second is a Zucchini which they grow up in their garden. This is so big that I could not recognize it. The third is lavender. This is also grown up in their garden. The lavender is poisoned me because of beautiful fragrance. Thank you very much.

In the evening, they were interested in my husband’s story about Canal Street. Therefore, he took them to a pub in Canal Street. He told me that they enjoyed having beer and spent a fantastic time to chat there.

My relatives in London approved that Canal Street of Manchester is more amazing and safer than London:-)

Canal Street

Do you know about Canal Street in Manchester? Someone says that the street is dangerous so she or he recommends us not to go there. The other person says nothing with smile when hearing of it. Any way, opinions on the street vary.

Majority of people who regularly go to the street is gay, transsexual and things like that. Despite warning by someone, the street is quite friendly place to stay. Every staff in pubs on Canal Street is cool and cheerful. One pint beer costs about 2 pounds. This may be a little bit more expensive than it for the other pubs. However, inside pubs on the street is absolutely cosy.

On stepping into the pub, you can find new friends and start easily to talk with them. They are ready to accept you anytime with joy. Do not be shay nor afraid. Soon you will be get used to go to Canal Street.

Beautiful Library in Manchester

Library 1.jpg
There are perhaps around 10 libraries called the most beautiful in the world.
One of them is ‘the John Rylands Library’, Deansgate.
The library is not only beautiful but solemn very much.
Library 2.jpg
Current exhibition is titled as the Life and Literature of Charles Darwin.
I look throughout it and find that he is absolutory great scientist. His voyage of the Beagle was nearly 5 years. Then he collected many evidence to support his theory. You can see here the first edition of ‘the Origin of Species’. This must be one of the world treasures.

Jane Eyre in the Peak District

Rain, rain, rain.
This is British weather.

However, it was sunny on some day.
On that day, I drove to the Peak District in Derbyshire where I love the most to visit in the UK.
She, the driver, likes science, so she explained shape of land, lime stone, flower and everything belonging to nature during driving.

Moor, that is one of my favourite landscapes, is widely laid under the sky. Wind is coming from far away, beyond hills and hills.

This remains me of Brontes, again. Yes, I am currently reading Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. Perhaps, this is the fourth or fifth times to read.

In the Peak District, I would like to say loudly ‘I am coming!, Wait for me!, I will come!’ as if I were Jane Eyre :)
