Birmingham, London, demonstrations

Birmingham, UK


UK, like some other Western European countries enjoyed some protests against Congolese election results; apparently they had two presidents elected at the same time, and now the country is a brink of another civil war. Demonstrators expressed their unhappiness with how UK government deals with this this issue. I am not sure if they want sanctions against Congo or repeat of Libyan scenario, but let's see what happens next. Some people in Belgium, during similar demonstration, died. I think no one got hurt in UK...

 Trafalgar Square, London

Hotel I was staying in London... Joking.
Still looks nice..

London seems like a nice place to live in, so I will try to move there as soon as possible. As I found out (after like two months of living here) Birmingham is considered as one of the worst places to live in England, at least that's what Brits told me when I was visiting Estonia. Interesting that no one told me this here in UK. Well, at least now I know. But it's not as bad as its reputation I guess, but lack of parks and greenery does make this place a bit depressing. 

The only park in Birmingham city center. Or the only one I remember now. And it's way too small anyway. Please, residents of Birmingham, have a demonstration for creating more parks in your hometown. From another side, there's a saying in Russian "в чужой монастырь со своим уставом не лезь", rough translation would be "don't go to another monastery with own rules". Who am I to tell you what to do, I am just a passer-by. Haha



  1. UK -.- Everything makes my country look bad.

    1. No, not really :)
      I'll try to make next post more positive :D
