Day 14 and 15 - back to Cardiff, NIN interview
Melody had set up a level in the fridge just for curries. Awesome. Some wine and laughs. I told her about my weekend.
I walked through the Cardiff market. It still smells the same as the first time I visited here when I was ten. There's a fish market at the entrance (that accounts for the smell) that almost always displays a small shark for sale. It's great! They also sell laver, a tasty seaweed from South Wales. A nice Welsh dish is laver bread. Mix the laver with oats in equal parts, form into patties and fry up. Traditionally, it would have been fried in bacon fat but since I'm veggie, I just use olive oil. It's pretty good on toast with mustard.
Myself and Paul once saw Catatonia, (singer Cerys Matthews) in the Coal Exchange. It's an old building where coal from the Bay was literally exchanged. It had been turned into a music venue but has since been turned derelict. Very unfortunate.
Next, more about Cardiff, Y Mochyn Du and the Goat...
