The night before we left for the northern part of Great Britain, we were hosted by a family at Paddington. It was nice to be able to get a good night rest before our trip to Stalybridge (15 minutes away from Manchester Piccadilly). It's where our friends who arranged the trip make their home. Stalybridge has the feeling of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia but a lot smaller and much less populated. It was great to be with our friends. We've been friends with them for about 8 years. We spent a lot of time just chatting in their living room, eating, swimming, witnessing, praying and studying the Bible. We also walked around the city and went to Manchester Piccadilly together. We so love this family! We are amazed at the great things the Lord has done through them. We thank God they are our friends.

We also checked out the city of Liverpool. It's 1-hour train ride away from Stalybridge. We walked around the city for about 4 hours. Isabelle was so excited when we visited the Bug World. It's a zoo for bugs. It was really cool. We, later, learned that it is the home of the Beatles. Well, we don't really care. We are not fond of them at all. But it was interesting to hear that Liverpool is one of the cities that the UK is eyeing for as its center. Well...
