Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Back from the land of the red dragon
We are back from a short holiday break in Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Their emblematic red dragon is everywhere: on the flag of course, which is also everywhere, but also on drink mats, postcards, t-shirts, cushions, rubbish bins, bottle openers, pencils, footballs and of course monuments. I had wanted to go back to Wales for a long while and I am glad it is done, it was nice to get in touch with the Welsh people, which I have always been quite fond of. However, I must confess that Cardiff as a whole did not impress me as much as I wished. It was my second visit to the city and maybe my memory had idealized it but I found it far dirtier than I remembered. It did not look nice everywhere, in fact I often found it ugly. But hey, it is still in the land of myths and legends and just for this I was so glad to be there. And we had a nice time. That said, when I revisit the land of the red dragon, it will probably be in a more rural area.
