Manchester

Is still here. This was a live report from the Portland Hotel. I thank you.

I've been in Manchester for 24hrs and it's been raining constantly. The last time I was in Manchester, around 30 years ago, it rained constantly. Obviously this is insufficient data to conclude that it hasn't stopped raining in Manchester during the intervening period, but am I right in suspecting that were such data to become available, it would confirm that this is in fact the case?

are you sure it's not Glasgow you're in?

Such a sexist name. How can this be considered acceptable in the 21st century?

I demand that the city is renamed Personchester.

"are you sure it's not Glasgow you're in?"

Fuck knows. Everywhere north of Ely is just "Foreign" as far as I'm concerned.

Hit the Curry Mile, in Rusholme. Too much choice, cheap and best....

Too late, been home since Saturday night. Would have been too busy for a curry anyway, as I was working. If you can call pointing a camera at people for a few hours and having all your expenses including hotel and beer paid for you working, anyway. Must admit it's something I wouldn't mind doing full time!

Best curry I ever had was in Moss Side.

That's pretty much the same area, as the curry mile, up from the university.
The one I had there was superb, stuffed for less than a tenner, incl pint of fizzy beer.
