It's funny how one year can leave such an impression. Was it because it was only the one year (and an academic year at that)? Or because we were mainly strangers to the city and each other? Or because of the diversity of our backgrounds (newly graduated, through ex teachers to an RAF squadron leader)? Or because we were all girls? Or because of the number of public houses we frequented?
Who knows? Whatever it was I'll never forget the time I spent in the Granite City, nor the friends I shared it with.
