Jon is at a meeting in Birghmingham this week so I have come down for the ride – we are staying at the Novotel in the city centre. The view from the room wasn’t very inspiring so I needed to fiddle with it in my IPhone apps
Checking in on my location near Brindley Place – I am minutes from the canal, the Ikon art gallery and the Birmingham library.
The Library and Ikon don’t open til 11am – I walked to the library – its highly decorated and new, I walked around it and inside as much as I am allowed until 11am
way spotted some nice sculpture, and a man made lake …. with ginkgo leaves that remind me of Korea.
Typically sitting and drinking coffee the sun has come out
At 11am I travelled up the floors to the secret garden and Shakespeare’s Memorial room – which was a surprise after all the modern concrete . Below are an illustration in a stairwell, the lift from the main library up to the secret garden and some layers on the way up.
Shakespeare’s memorial room – the lift was out of order so I had to climb up 90steps to the garden and another 46 to the memorial lol- it was as worth the climb
