I had already made the ten hour drive to this exciting new city earlier in the week in anticipation of her much-revered annual awards event, complete with fireworks!
Needless to say, hundreds flock for this night and I met some wonderful people, some from across oceans. In our spare time over the course of a week (which turned out to be a lot of spare time) droves of us would get on trains and go to cool places. On this particular evening, I was accompanied by Little Mike and Orchidius - two great overseas guys whose company will always be a pleasure.
This drain of choice this evening, overall, was fairly good. It lacked the jaw-dropping beauty of centuries-old red brick but what it lacked in historical interest it made up for in some cool other features.
