Newcastle on a Friday night

I had reason to spend a Friday night in Newcastle recently. It was a mild, moonlit night and I was glad to have my jumper and jacket on. I was pleased to see that the reputation of the Geordie youth for wearing the skimpiest clothes was upheld. Fortunately I didn't witness any of the drunken behaviour that has been known to characterise the city centre on a weekend night.

I enjoyed my stroll along the quayside stretch of the River Tyne where you can gain terrific views of the Millenium swing bridge - it swings round to allow large ships to pass through - and the Sage building; both beautifully illuminated at night.
