Yesterday was absolute chaos, my train was diverted twice and thus had to change at Preston and Crewe; typical. But I have finally arrived in Birmingham, and I never knew just how large it actually is. My assumption was based on the fact that Manchester and London are the main economic ‘power houses’, but this is simply not true. When I left the train station with heaps of luggage for this one week, I got lost on Navigation Street (irony) while trying to find my lodgings for the evening.
So when I got back and unpacked, me and Alex (a friend from the course also doing the same placement) went out to find somewhere to get a pint in. We stumbled across this very decadent establishment, which charged £5 for a pint of Estrella!
It’s now morning and I feel energetic and ready to start my first day at Shakespeare Martineau! #SHMA
