Nottingham City Pulse

Music is filling the streets of Nottingham as the City Pulse is in full swing. Yesterday saw performers at 5 locations round the city, a large stage in front of the council house in the Old Market Square and the Samba band playing as they wandered round the city. The music contines until Monday and I am sure that we will be heading back down today or tomorrow.

Nottingham Samba
Now, if you look carefully at the samba picture, you will see a very unusual mix of cultures. The Dalai Lama is in town and some of the monks wandered down to the city centre to see what was happening. It was wonderful to watch two young teenage girls spontaneous hug two of the older monks and I hope they enjoy their stay. We have so much bad press about this city that I feel it is important to remember the mood of events like these where people join in and enjoy themselves.
In the meantime, we are going to hear the Dalai Lama speak this afternoon.
