Can anyone guess where we are in Newcastle?  There’s a rather large “thing” facing this sign.  All will be revealed tomorrow!

What a contrast from all those warm sunny pictures, eh? Days like this day in December at one of the several christmas markets really make those sunny days seem far away, even at the end of February. Lets hope they come back soon!
