sunny leeds and a deli to die for

i went to leeds for the ICS (intensive care society) spring meeting. it was interesting, lots of stuff that made sense to me and little or no marketing jargon or communications spin. i was a little annoyed that one of the talks was about bariatric (obese) patients in ICU…he had quite a few jokes and slides making fun of fat americans…

i liked leeds alot, i stayed at the city inn..a very comtemporary hotel, very white and sleek. my room looked out over the train station…literally.

it wasn’t noisy at all and i really enjoyed sitting by the window most of the evening with my feet up watching the trains come and go while watching telly on the apple mac screen. i couldn’t be bothered playing around on the mac computer but it was a nice touch.

my dad used to travel alot for his job and now i am seeing things from a different perspective because i know mr a would have really enjoyed the hotel room and watching the trains…more than me

the meeting itself was held at the royal armouries. the food wasn’t very good but i did have a wander round the museum for my last hour, it was nice if you like that sort of thing but the best part was this display they have going up the inside of a big column…

i snapped that last photo as i was trying to be inconspicuous on the platform waiting for the train back to birmingham. i would like to go back there because they have a nice walk from the hotel to the armouries along the river through brewers wharf and granary wharf which is where i stumbled on this little gem of a deli.
