Journal Entry:
Went to Euston station, bought my ticket to Manchester, and put my pack in storage. Caught the underground to Camden Town and spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon wandering around Camden Town Market.

Took the Manchester Metrolink to the hostel. Started talking to a woman about rowing in Wales (she had a rowing sweatshirt on). She gave me directions to bar she was going to be at later, and I headed for dinner. Had a nice dinner at a local pub, and asked directions on how to get to this other bar, she looked at me funny and convinced me to take a taxi. I told the taxi where I wanted to go and he looked at me funny too. Shortly after I got to the bar I realized that everyone there was a couple and they were all same sex. Imet Mandy and we hung ou there until closing time. Then it was a long walk home and time for bed.
