Don’t talk to me about sophistication, I’ve been to Birtley

A weird evening and night in Chester-le-Street as the family are still enjoying the heady delights of a few days in Scarborough (holiday from the holiday from the holiday for the children, as I like to call it).

Out this morning still moderately confused about what the time is, running past various hoards of schoolkids at bus stops.  I just did the super-simple 2.5k to Birtley, turn round and come back.  It has the benefit of being almost completely flat so I just charged along and tried to keep the time down a bit.

Storm clouds gathering and hopefully passing.

5km, 24:03.

570km remaining.

(Ctesiphon, capital of the Sassanid Empire (just south of Baghdad), becomes the largest city in the world, overtaking Constantinople; Islam’s prophet Muhammed is born in Mecca, into the predominantly pagan Quraysh tribe)
