Beatles are all over the buildings on this street
The first thing I have to say about Liverpool is that it is the very first urban area in the entire U.K. where men who work at the train stations volunteered and did carry my heavy luggage up and down stairs to the platform. It happened twice today, on my way into the city. I even tried to get them off the hook by saying that I could carry my bag, and it was really heavy. But no, they gallantly carried it all the way to my destination. So, hats off to the men in Liverpool, at least the ones I have met during the early hours of arrival.
Nearly a year later, and I continue to be impressed with Liverpool. Go there, amble through the re-vamped core and look for the cultural markers both old and new. Take that ferry trip along the harbour and get off across the water to get the scenic view and find good pubs. Best of all, enjoy the people.
