The first night Gaffa and I met up with one of Gaffa's long time friends - Ms. Tall, from when they holidayed together in Spain, as teenagers. Her parents and Australian boyfriend (who didn't sound Australian at all!!), took us to an Indian Restaurant called Akbar. I tried another biryani, hoping to have a better experience than in London. This one came out with a little too much rice and a small curry sauce. But was still really tasty. The naan bread was massive, and came out on a big stake - lucky there was 6 of us!
The next day in Leeds we spent with Mouldy Man and his girlfriend Kimbo - who has the same obsession with the colour purple as I do, awesome! Mouldy Man is one of the few people who has kept in touch with Gaffa as he has travelled, and the two of them are really close (like brothers actually), so it was cool to see Gaffa on "home turf" with such a good friend. First we visited the Leeds Museum, which had a Spice Girls exhibition on!! Yeah!! What great timing!! I loved the Spice Girls, and was so upset when they didn't make it to Australia for their reunion concert :( But it was pretty cool seeing all the Spice Girls Memorabilia.

Next stop: drinkies!!
We got some handout vouchers for 2 for 1 cocktails and free shots, so of course we took advantage of that. 4 cocktails and 2 shots each later, we went to Wetherspoons for some cheap pitchers of more cocktails. By the end of the night we were mixing a red concoction with a purple drink.... signs of a great night when you start mixing your drinks!!
