A shot in Birmingham

First travel to Birmingham.

For the police registration.

Though it is the second biggest city in the UK, I found it was just industrial and of medium size. The subway station where i went for toilet was old and cold.

The church in the centre of the city was beautiful and impressing. Shopping malls were huge and lots of fun, for i am always a person who is crazy about shopping. I controlled myself successfully not buying useless items this time.

I dislike British food at all. When i felt cold in the rain, what i eagerly need was just a hot cappucino and a warm dish. I still cannot understand the eating habits here in England. Why so many cold sandwiches or baguettes? How strong a British's stomach should be!!!

Vegetable and fruit are cheaper in the open market in Birmingham than in Coventry city centre. But adding the travel expense together, i don't think it worth going to Birmingham for shopping every each weekend. Perhaps once a month is the best.
