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.
