I thought Bristol as the next town on my list would be easy, not so. In fact it has been really hard. I have only visited Bristol once as a ‘sightseer’, you know where you spend time actually wandering round and finding things. I did take some good pictures too but as I began to research Bristol I discovered that there are so many things to tell. Bristol has connections dated back as far as Saxon times and was originally known as ‘Bricgstow’. Not difficult to see how the name changed to become Bristol when you know the wonderful local accent. Bristol was believed to have been founded sometime between 577 and 978 AD, I say believed to be founded because  it is not mentioned until a while after documented evidence proves that Bath, Cirencester and Gloucester were involved in a battle that Bristol had no mention in. However Bristol was there in 1063…

My A-Z continues with B, and three of my favourite Dominican things. Bailando Bachata, Bibiendo Brugal and Barahona! (Dancing bachata, drinking Brugal and Barahona)

B seems quite “Sexy” in the Dominican Republic!

Being an architect, this would be the most logical way to start my A-Z. But I will try not to write too much.

 

For anyone with even a minor interest in architecture, the UK is an amazing place. It is possible to find a diversity of buildings dating from Roman times to modern, living side by side, in an improbable harmony. It may be the wealth, or the need to show the greatness of the empire, or simply the creative minds of someone living in a quite-grey-and-not-that-warm place but the fact is that throughout times the UK has had some different ways of looking into the architectural trends. Every year, the London Festival of Architecture and the London Open House are great opportunities to learn a bit more about these.

Random Observations of Life

How does Australia stack up when it comes to crime?  After all, crime or rather the lack thereof, is something most people investigate when deciding where to live.

While we do make TV dramas about our underworld wars and find our drunken violence in the city streets on the weekends very disturbing and unwelcome, we really don’t have a horrendous crime rate in most areas (there are exceptions in small pockets).

During 2010/2011, 359,079 offences were recorded as occurring in Victoria. The total number of offences recorded in 2010/2011 was 2.4% lower than in 2009/2010. As a rate of recorded offences per 100,000 population, there were 6,428.7 offences recorded in 2010/2011. This crime rate was 3.9% lower than the crime rate recorded during 2009/2010 and is the lowest rate per 100,000 population since the implementation of LEAP in March 1993.
