Rainy day

It's been grey, and drizzly. So we went for a coffee at the Playwright's café on the Coventry Basin wharf.

We paid a visit to the Portuguese shop, also on the wharf, and chatted in Portuguese with the owner and her Brazilian friend.

And then we stayed under cover.

Meanwhile, various crews have been erecting scaffolding-framed stalls for a festival due to take place in the Basin tomorrow. Apparently it's an annual celebration of an historic occasion from 19th century India, when Hindu women and Muslim women stopped their menfolk fighting each other. Covid stopped them holding it last year, so everyone's looking forward to it. We've arrived at the right time to experience some of the culture of this city of culture. Especially if there's no fighting.

Hope it's a bit drier than today.
