Been shopping today, swimming and visiting the castle. The first I have seen so far to have decorated rooms, and they were impressive. As far as shopping goes, I was shocked at seeing how low the prices are for sports apparel and footwear. So I got myself a running kit with new running shoes. The weather was completely off the forecasts, which had predicted a miserable rainy day and we got nice sunshine starting in mid afternoon that actually stayed stable for several hours. Cardiff is an interesting city architecturally, but the city centre is just one big sprawling mall much like ours except for the conspicuous quasi absence of electronic stores. It was nice to realx and take it easy today. And drink some cloudy lemonade in a pub.
