England London Birmingham

1 July 2010

All day driving

Today I sat in the passenger seat for a journey to Birmingham and back, and then about another 100 miles on top of that, so about 400 miles in total.
Perhaps diesel BMW's leak carbon monoxide into the cab, but this left me feeling very drowsy, I did go out for a walk in the evening, but walked away out of the city and didnt see anything much to photograph and couldnt find anywhere to eat.
In the end I ate in the train station forecourt near my hotel at Nandos, somewhere I eat quite often in Australia.

I do however now have 6 hours+ listening experience of Radio 1, the main BBC radio station, and it doesnt dissapoint with its terribleness, much like their television. When the 10am crew took over they played (and I am not exaggerating) a 10 minute intro montage of soundbytes of themselves set to techno beats and fart noises, it kept building to a crescendo of fail.
Later in the day we were treated to 'the posh lady from radio 4 reads your emails'. She then read the lyrics to a Lady Gaga song, and soon after this had been remixed into a song featuring soundbytes and fart noises.
The future of Britain is in fart noises and Lady Gaga.

Heres my nandos dinner, they have some extra choices in sides compared to Australia, including rattatouille which you can see here, which was actually very nice. Nandos in the UK is too expensive though.


England-London-Birmingham - Due to a lack of other photos, you are treated to a photo of my crappy hotel room. It has no air conditioning and the window opens about half an inch.

Due to a lack of other photos, you are treated to a photo of my crappy hotel room. It has no air conditioning and the window opens about half an inch. When its been 30C and your room is tiny, this is a sure recipe for sleeping with a wet towel for cooling.
