    University!
    And the local council too!
    Firstly the university is all over the place - secondly the local council has signposted all the different campuses as "UoR" ------

    Ergo one can end up walking miles to the wrong one - only to have to take a bus to the main uni centre (which appears to be a ghost university today -- had to retreat to the one place on a campus that would not be closed - the bar!)
    From there I had to travel across the campus again to reach my destination - where upon I had to remain on my feet as I did the sciency stuff!

    All because two signposts to UoR look exactly the same at crossroads!
    and I have to go back there monday.................................

    Sorry, I thought you meant reading as in reading a book ;)

    Was there in 2002 for the rock fest - quite enjoyed it from what I remember, but quite frankly that isn't much given the alcohol intake I had - not to mention other substances I consumed ;)

    the only thing that kept me sane was Moving Pictures (Terry Pratchett!) on the train there and back!

    Must say I don't think I could live in any urban area and be happy -- just too much urban and too many people!

    I am always torn between countryside and urban/big city. I want the advantages of both apparently ;)

    meh shops and stuff like that are about the only bonus to me of a city ( not much of a nightclub person me - and I prefer my pubs more traditional and less filled with students ;))
    and with teh internets and the wonders of online ordering I have less need of cities - food though is a problem......

    hehe I thought that question was going to come sooner ;)
    Nope I got off a Early since that is closer to the campus I was aiming for (though missed!) than the Reading Station is - so I was a longways from the town center - and I have work to do that needs doing - so no shop time :(
    (very annoying for me since whilst I have not yet camera funds I am trying to get a book that appears to not be in any bookstore near me - and the reading waterstones is large!)
