The UEFA cup disaster

Considering how sour the 14th May turned out to be, a city center trashed and riots (more than 100 000 Glasgow Rangers gathered), I'll try to keep in mind the photo above taken the day before, of a little boy playing football on the Piccadilly Gardens fountain in Manchester city Center. Around the fountain were the Adult Rangers fans, cheering and drinking, and in the center, possibly the ones really deserving the name of fan, the children actually playing the game.

Some football event going on today

I've always tried to avoid football, but living in Manchester makes it extremely difficult...

Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester is not the prettiest place in town, but it is a very popular spot for people to meet and soak up the little amount of sun that we get here at the moment. It is also providing children with a fountain of endless fun. The water jets appear, grow and vanish sometimes randomly, sometimes with a pattern. The parents watch their offspring and have dry clothes and towel ready for when the children come back to them exhausted and full of stories to tell as they start shivering...

The fairies are around us

In the back street next to my building, there is a little fairy that it took me a long time to notice, she's watching who comes in. She's a beautiful creature, well hidden between a blue water pipe and a red brick wall. She must have been living here for a while....

What do you think she's watching?
