It's a good place to be, and we are enjoying time here again.
Here are a random collection of photos from our wanderings around the city. Although today I forgot the camera.
The iconic Selfridges building at the Bullring the huge shopping centre.
Intriguing street sign
The hall of memory, a different kind of war memorial
the new library building due to be finished next year.
the folk group Mellow Peaches performing on in the Symphony hall cafe bar, where free after work concerts are held.
St Martin's in the BullringThe Museum and Art Gallery has an interesting exhibition on the history of Birmingham, and we have been to the Thinktank Science Museum, a very hands-on gallery well suited to children, but we had fun too. The Planetarium theatre was very good.
