Flybe to Manchester, arriving our favorite Arora Hotel, walking around, lunch, tram to meet Duncan and everyone at the new MUST offices by Old Trafford, a walk around Old Trafford, and dinner with everyone at Croma. We were lucky it was a warm and sunny day, very unlike Manchester. Alex loved riding backwards in the taxis, and Alex and Vincent both loved the trams, and the hotel, of course!
JD's Birthday! MUST AGM meeting while it rained, lunch at The Bishop Blaize (with pancakes on the dessert menu), a walk around Chorlton with Duncan, stopping for tapas, and then beers (note the menu - there is a hot dog craze in Manchester), and dinner with Allie, Duncan, Callum and Tiernan. Then we crashed a 50 year olds birthday party where Vincent danced and we watched the slugs come out of the garden. Sadly, no pictures of the last part. And no pictures of the "urban fox" we saw, which was really just a fox with mange.
A walk around the City Center and visit to the new National Football Museum. A long lunch at The Alchemist them back to Paris.
Taking a walk by Alex and Vincent's school 8 blocks from our house, the park, investigating the new shopping mall in our town with a "hypermarche" (=Costco), eating at the "Happy Days Diner", bath, L'Anjou, running by L'Anjou(it was hot, 90°F), dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant.
Vincent is enjoying his trains, more park, trying out some Mexican food with grocery store ingrediants, getting Lincoln his food and a scratch pad.
