Almost a month past already! I quite like Liverpool, its a pretty cool place. Lots to do in the city and in the Wirral (where I'm living at the moment). Lots of young adults and students (apparently I look about 20 and like a student) to hang out with. I've been spending most evenings in Liverpool and weekends exploring a little bit, getting some guided tours by locals and learning more about the history of the place and how to (badly) speak scouse.

Fame wise, a few names from merseyside are well known around the globe. Daniel Craig aka new James Bond is a local wirral man born in Chester I think (there's a signed poster at the hospital) and with the local music scene, Liverpool is also famous for producing the Beatles!
|lots of lambananas|
All around the area there are these lambananas. These are iconic works of art (each unique) with the biggest one being bright yellow and 6 metres high. They were designed by a japanese artist Taro Chiezo created to warn people of the potential dangers of genetically modified foods, and appropriately located in liverpool because of it's history trading lambs and importing bananas. Apparently you are meant to go around and get your photo taken with them all (something I am yet to do). I can't actually pronounce it right either. It is MEANT to sound something like lummbanana but I am yet to perfect that accent! These things seriously crack me up, they are so random and everywhere. We have one at the entrance of the hospital where I work as well.
