Thinking of Sheffield

Tonight I have been thinking about Sheffield. I will not share the memory chain along which my wandering thoughts traveled. However, I will note that I was in Sheffield four years ago this month.

Sheffield Train Station, reflections, UK Train TravelI was in England to do some training. I had two training sessions with one at our office in Cambridge and one in Sheffield for the engineers who lived further north.

This was one of my first views of Sheffield as I left the train station to walk to my hotel. I really like the way the arches are reflected in the water.

When out and about in the evening I saw this interesting Starbucks. One thing I like about England are all the brick buildings with wood trim. This is a good example.

It is always interesting to see colorful street art.
