For the record: I really love British pubs. Beer is great, food also (although it’ll give you a coronary sooner or later). And you simply cannot beat the atmosphere. The shot above is just a snapshot taken in York, while visiting a colleague at York University last week.
I can tell you, we had beautiful spring weather, and the city is really worth a visit. Quite a bit of history around there – Wikipedia is a good start to learn more. For once they even have less-than-absolutely-grisly photos accompanying the article.
