Belfast.....My Home Town.....
I was just in Belfast today getting my daughters school uniform and although it was really busy I realised how much it had changed in the last five years. It has become more European and the shops in the City have got so much better. The bloddy people still bump into you though but I still find a swift elbow works every time..
Cast my mind back 25 years or so and Belast was suffering the worst bombing of any town in the UK and I have to say I admire the average Belfast person like myself as we have put up with a lot. But we still have a smile on our face!!
So does Belfast differ any say from Nottingham or Manchester. I have been to Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow and I would say it is more like Glasgow.
Belfast has all the main stores like HMV, Virgin Megastore,Game,Woolworths and all the other big names...
Years ago I went to Majorca on holiday and befriended an English couple who took pity on us because we were from that place where the bombs went off and the gunman was in your garden. Belfast is nothing like that, it's a quite little place and the people from it are the most friendly in the world, well maybe not "Duke"..lol.but I think maybe he is from Lisburn..
So are there places of interest. You have all the usual attractions. Ice Bowls, Cinemas, the Museum, Belfast Zoo and off course Stormont Castle..
Belfast City Centre was buzzing today and I reckon any of you from the mainland uk would have loved it. The shops are great and the people are as well, ok maybe they push and shove, and this person actually tried to push in front of me in a queue, but they are a good crowd...
So if you haven't paid a visit to Belfast then get up off your bum and go and check the cost to travel to Belfast. It's not a warzone, it is a great little place...and don't forget I would make you more than welcome..But pl
ease don't expect me to buy you a drink..Belfast might have changed but I haven't!!!!
And my daughter, she got the uniform, and the price of the shoes..I nearly fainted!!
Anyway thank you for the read, have a great weekend and don't drink too much, your friend online..........
Art....1st Sept 2001....Dedicated to all of you on the mainland!!!!
