As of Monday morning I've been in England. Sheffield, England, to be exact. I'm here for work. It'll make posting about the things I've been working on a little difficult as, well, I'll have less time to work on things.
Here is an unedited view from my window. It's good to know that I can get a slice of America in the form of coffee everywhere I go. I remember visiting Ensenada and seeing a Starbucks on the main tourist strip as well. That and "4 Coronas & 1 Tequila shot" for $10.
The architecture is pretty amazing. I don't know what the exact term is, but it reminds me of the buildings you'd see in the Mary Poppins film. We passed by some residential ares and they were these nice, cozy homes, side stacked next to each other like a fancy row of teeth. I don't have much to say about these larger buildings in the photo here. They looked neat.
There also happened to be this street fair happening in the downtown area by the hotel. I wasn't sure if this was a temporary thing or it was a permanent setup. They had children's rides as well as booth games, such as the "fire a machine gun" game and the "hook a duck" game. I wanted to try my hand at one to win Oliver and Josie something, but realized that the money would be better spent at the overpriced Harrods when we visit London on Saturday.
I popped into a GAME (as well as another video game store I don't remember the name of) on this main street. It's like the equivalent of a Gamestop. I then thought to myself, "why am I even here? I can't play any of these games on my systems (barring the Vita) and their prices in pounds is much more than that of the American dollar." It was nice to see that things haven't changed across the pond though. Everyone is pushing used. Everyone is pushing pre-orders.
I don't think I'll be soaking up a lot of the night life as time goes on as I'll likely be working, but it was nice to get out and about. I do miss home though.
