Five things I love about Liverpool

Firstly, I should point out these definitely not the only, and probably not the best, reasons I love Liverpool. They are just the ones I want to point out.

In no particular order...

1. The Guinness Wall.

I should point out that the clock is either broken or set to the wrong time. Either way, I've never spotted it showing the right time.

2. The Echo Game

This is quite a simple idea so I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is already a common thing, but in Liverpool City Centre there are many of these newspaper vendors.

(To save their privacy I've disguised their faces, I don't know if you can tell.)

Anyway, the local paper is the Echo and the vendors will intermittently call out "Echo!", and I like to then say "Echooooooooooo". So I echo their echo. It amuses me.

3. The City Councils 'no nonsense' attitude.

I imagine the conversation in the office went like this.

"The information on that sign on Mount Pleasant is no longer correct, Should we replace the sign, or remove it or what?"
"Nah, just gaffa tape a bin liner to it."

4. Sefton Park

5. Finally, it's socially unacceptable to buy the Sun.
