Bristol City Center & Old City

Aloha Everyone,

Old City where we are staying is full of character. Cobbled streets and alleyways are where you find King Street (where we are staying) and Queen Square. Some of oldest and striking architectures in Bristol are also located in this neighborhood.

Today Central Bristol is hosting the Bristol Cycle Grand Prix and Let's Ride events. When J.J. and I stepped out of our hotel, the two of us immediately encountered road closures and pedestrian barricades.

We stopped by Arnolfini, an internationally renowned contemporary art gallery, but the place was barren. It appeared they were in between exhibits. The Grain House is where the Youth Hostel is located and this where we would find a coin-operated laundry.

Still trying to figure out our activities in Bristol, we stopped by the Tourist Information Center located in the Watershed. ChloƩ, originally from France, was very helpful and she assisted me with information on places to visit and things to do.

Aloha -- Cathi
