Norwich (and spying)
I've been away in Norwich this weekend, so haven't been able to post today - so just a little something until tomorrow.
Norwich is a fine city, with lots of history (see a previous post). This weekend was the Lord Mayor's Parade with lots of celebrations around the city. The weather was wonderful. We just caught the end of the parade - and enjoyed all the street entertainment and the "extra" markets around the city (it has an excellent permanent outside market in front of the City Hall). If you ever get the chance - do visit Norwich - the canalised River Wensum is lovely to walk along; the Cathedral and its surroundings are beautiful; and the Castle is magnificent and contains a superb museum. There are lots of old churches and other historic buildings.
On the 'friends who spy on friends' issue. The European Parliament has posted this video.
