    Too good to leave
    Anticipating time off in November I thought I'd do what I often do at that time of year: have a city break. Good to get away to one of the other great British cities: London, Glasgow, Cardiff: somewhere full of cultural delights, high and low. Thinking about it though, this year there only seems one option. I'll have a city break in Liverpool. Why? well, there's so much here to see and do. Not only will the massive Liverpool Biennial (which starts this weekend, though The Joyful Trees are already delightfully installed) be reaching its peak, but also the greatly anticipated Le Corbusier exhibition (the first in Britain for over 20 years) will be on by then too. So the only question for me is: should taking a city break in my own town involve me booking a B&B and seeing the place like any other tourist would? Mmmm... tempting.
