What's England like?
 
I may be going to England in the near future for like 6 months. I'll know more details pretty soon.

I think what you meant to say was: "I like the airports and pubs".

Either Solihull or Leeds.

Ben 25th January 2008 06:19 PM

Solihull or Leeds? May God (or whoever else is in charge) grace you with Leeds.

I went to University there, great city.

ValenciaSon 25th January 2008 06:22 PM

As I know more, I'll keep you posted, otherwise, I still have to be approved by the client, the NHS.

I spent a week in Solihull on a course a few years back. Seemed OK. Thankfully low on Yorkshiremen. :D

City of my birth and a great night out, close to magnificent scenery of the Dales and the Wolds and the coast (70 miles). Teeming with Yorkshiremen so pretty good. Yorkshire is a bit like Catalunya - part of the UK that thinks its independent. Leeds is the first city of the region and a prety affluent town - We have the other Harvey Nicks.

I think if I could chose I'd plump for Leeds - loads of apartments available near the centre, real Tetleys bitter (not the stuff they make in Warrington or Burton), a spanish group that meets twice a month and of course I could be easily available for the occasional evening out...;D

Well I work for the NHS, so maybe I'll have to approve you :thumbs-up:

For instance, the difference between greater London, the Channel Islands and Bodmin Moor - last Wednesday I saw a program about some lonely guys living in the Bodmin area - surely this must be one of the spookiest places in Europe! :eek:

Huuu... huuu (tawny owl calling in the night)

You'll find it very enjoyable working for an IT supplier for the NHS. It's like living in a real life sit-com.
