Birmingham

I’ve been here in Birmingham for 5 days now. I’m mainly here for a 2-day TEFL (teaching english as a forgeign language) classroom course.

Monday was a rest day and laundry and I pretty much stayed in bed all day napping and watching Netflix.

Our first day out in Birmingham brings us walking around the neighbourhood  of Digbeth. From what I can see it is industrial and commercial, but they have great at murals on every street.  

Afterwards, we walk across town to the Birmingham Art Museum around Victoria Square.

I like this museum.  The inside looks like a train station.  The areas are clearly marked and the layout is really simple.  

The was the first museum I hung out in the café and didn’t feel like I had to leave right away.

They had haggis for their special but unfortunately, it wasn’t vegetarian.

After the museum, I walked around geocaching which took me past the Gas Basin, the Birmingham Library, the Hall of Memories and through New Street which is a pedestrian walkway.
