Mid-morning until mid-afternoon in Lincoln.

Colder than I expected, I thought it was going to be warmer, but grateful not bitterly cold as a few days ago.

Interesting guy playing a sax in The High Street. Had I chatted (I did  not wish to disturb him) I would have advised find a church, make use of the acoustics, set up recording gear,  release on bandcamp (with a CD for streets sales).  But cut out the backing track, as crap.

Central

Central Market

It is tragic every time I walk through Sincil Street and the Central Market, to see both destroyed.  The two are interrelated. An unwanted shopping mall at the end of Sincil Street, which has blighted the street, boarded-up shops, short term leases. Stall holders have been driven out of The Cornhill, relocated to Sincil Street. Leaving the Central Market with few stalls, only the wholefood stall worth making a trip for.

Excellent cappuccino in Coffee Aroma Coffee House.

Then lunch at Age Concern, which was quite reasonable.
