Journal Entry:
One of Manchester's tourist attractions is The Museum of Science and Industry, I love these kinds of museums, but they're all pretty much the same so I had decided to skip it. However, last night I found a flier at a pub describing a show they were doing there. So I had aranged to meet Mandy to see it. The show was called "BT Dialog in the Dark". It was excellent. It was 45 minutes in pitch black, led through everyday settings (a garden, a street, a house, and a bar) by a blind person. It was incredibly well executed, everything was reduced to textures and sound (and with all the extraneous sounds they were usually more confusing that helpful). After the show we spent some time walking around the exhibits and in general I thought the museum was execellent.

After last night I felt a little under the weather (ie Hungover) so I opted to spend the afternoon in the hostle doing laundry (it needed to be done and if you're going to be miserable, might as well get something done while you're at it). Afterwards I caught an evening train back to London.
