Weekends

Busy couple of weekends... last Saturday, since it was a bank holiday, we decided to treat ourselves to a night at the Clarion in town to de-stress from our recent house-moving escapades, making as much use of the facilities as the budget allowed. On Sunday night, we had tickets for a recording of RTÉ's The Panel, which is always good for a a laugh. And this weekend, we went for an international shopping day-trip... well, okay, we took the train up to Belfast. Dunno if it's the slightly-more-Scottish-accents or the City Hall that looks a bit like a squashed version of the City Chambers, but it reminded me of Glasgow even more than last time I was there.

Comments:

Calum, closer to the tropics, Durban City Hall, designed in Modern Renaissance style and completed in 1910, closely resembles the Belfast City Hall. While it looks quite similar, the palm trees create a distinctly different (Colonial African) atmosphere.

Interesting, thanks for pointing that out!
