Cardiff! (I Have No Idea What I’m Doing)

My only plan for Cardiff was to go to the Bay and see the Millennium Centre.  I wasn’t sure how big the city was or how long it would take me to get around.  For some reason I thought of Cardiff as a giant city where it would take me hours to get between sights.  For this reason I didn’t plan much.

It wasn’t until April that I realized Cardiff’s not really that big.

Not that I didn’t see interesting things while I was there in 2011:

The Wales Millennium Centre (of course)

Eventually I ran out of things to look at around the Bay area.  So I decided to get on a bus and go towards the city.  Thinking back, it would have been nice if I had any idea where I was going.

My plan was to watch carefully where the bus went, then walk back.  I didn’t want to miss my train out of Cardiff (I had plans on seeing a show in London that night), so I didn’t get too far away from the train station.  On my walk back I saw a lot of things, some of which I had no idea what they were.

I think this is the library.

Not sure what it is, but I like the old + new.

And then I saw something that I didn’t expect to see – a poster for a movie that was filmed in Halifax, and which some friends of mine acted in:

"Hobo With A Shotgun" - Halifax represent!

“Hobo With A Shotgun” – Halifax represent!

A B-Movie created from a fake trailer in a Tarantino/Rodriguez movie, and possibly the last thing I thought I’d see across the pond.  I never would have noticed that if I hadn’t been aimlessly wandering around.

How very random.
