Hm, I live in a city, very close to the middle.
My city has, and a lot of the british people around me will agree, one of the [s]worst[/s] most peculiar accent in the whole of England, and, no, we don't have one distinctive accent.
Well, yeah, obviously it's Capital of Culture 2008 which we won over Oxford, which came as quite a surprise. It basically means we have a lot of money to spend on making the city look perttier and having that new stadium that we need.
We are the only city to have two cathedrals and are the most Catholic area in Britain. The anglican cathedral is actually quite pretty, I think my great grandad was in the building project as well as the Mersey Tunnel. So, there's quite a lot of architecture, and there's the Liver buildings, not pronounced like liver. Too many tourists approach me in what way to go. There's St George's and the museum, but I rather dislike the museum as it only has few amounts of fish and insects.
Actually, I think it's much more advantageous living in the city because you have all the shops around you and many many many bus routes. I actually get a free bus pass in September so it's verry convenient for me. There's every kind of shop, and you can pick from more than one that specialise in the same area, of course.
Of a night, though, just, don't go outside. None of you have mentioned anything good about your area, but all things bad, you haven't seen what mine is like. Police patrol the major crime areas at night regularly, often the way you are dressed will often get you into a fight, or, if you even make eye contact with someone they think you're their enemy. People pry on the old people, and anyone they recognise as weaker than them.
There's a fair bit of stealing, people will take anything, usually 2 houses get broken into at Christmas time in my road, which quite saddens me. My neighbour's bikes are constantly stolen and the sheds are always being broken into. Never ever leave your sat-nav on show or leave anything in your car. In fact, don't have nice plants in your garden either.
Nhm, music, I don't see how this comes into this, but of course we gave everyone the Beatles who I am not much of a fan of because it's so not my generation. Everyone has music tastes that vary, but obviously if you're in a city the majority of people choose rap, although you get the goth and emo congregations of a Saturday in the city centre. Everyone has their cliques and their areas, I just walk everywhere.
Oh and, there's that football team I hate, Liverpool FC. I hate it because the fans are so arrogant, when supporting doesn't match up to the skill of people on the pitch, if you support the opposite football team, they'd laugh and think they did all the work. I remember when West Ham won something and I ran around the city centre finding all the evertonians, if I was lucky, some West Ham supporters. Everton's ground is moving though, seems a shame for all those who had ashes scattered over the ground.
