Please note the ungodly hour of our train's departure. And the beautiful misty countryside out the train window which put me in a better mood.
The Mailbox - an upscale shopping center which is also home to several restaurants. This was very near our hotel so we ended up going there a couple of times. We ate at Cafe Rouge - actually, a chain of french cafes, but still very good.
Plus it has a beautiful view...Bull Ring shopping mall (the silver spaceship-like building in the photo below). To be honest, I didn't go in but a few of our tour-mates went and liked it. It just seemed very Americanized to me...they even had a Forever 21! Still the building is impressive.
82 Digbeth, Birmingham) It is a very large warehouse sized store and it had some really great dresses plus a huge menswear section which made "The Brit" happy.
Custard Factory which is an artsy quarter located at the former site of an actual Bird's Custard Factory. We were there on a Sunday so many of the shops and restaurants were shut but it was still a very unique area to walk around. Definitely worth a look.
Oh and here's a beautiful Church in the city center on the way back to our hotel.
One night we had dinner with the Secret Sisters and company at a delicious Indian restaurant called Maharaja (23-25 Hurst St) which was very near our hotel and also very near the venue we played.
Speaking of which, the venue we played was called the "Glee Club"...
Only one more stop until the tour diary madness finishes....LONDON!
PS: HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! ❤❤❤❤❤ xdjrd
