Bath was wonderful in that much of the attributes of a historical city was intact. Something I look for in England is the England Enid Blyton describes in her books, but that is not that prevalent in what I have seen thus far – except of course I appreciate that Enid Blyton’s books are now close to if not more than fifty years old. Amie, who came with me to Bath is from Devon and according to her Devon is still very much Enid Blyton’s England. I can faintly recall Devon being mentioned in one of Enid Blyton’s books – first book of Famous Five perhaps.

Bath had a very traditional fudge shop, where staff were clad in very tradition victorian attire and were inviting people to sample their traditional fudges. A ‘fudge’ in England, for those of you who have not tasted it is very much like the ‘Kiri Toffee’ in Sri Lanka, albeit a softer version that dissolves easily in the mouth but breaks into small pieces when bitten. I say this because someone may have stolen the name ‘fudge’ and totally misrepresenting it in Sri Lanka.

Below are some of the portraits I took of the ‘fudge people’. Apologies that this one here is over exposed.

And my favourite of the two.

 

As photographs, not to the best of my liking. Just to document my travels.

 

Stone at the exhibition collection at the Roman Baths, Bath.

Image explaining the stone, which dates back to the first century ad, when Britain was under the Romans.

Of course, my pseudonym, Aufidius is not based on the Aufidius featured in this post. Rather, it’s based on Tullus Aufidius, a character in Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. I played Aufidius at the Shakespeare Drama Competitions for College a few years ago.

Coriolanus the film is currently being produced with Gerard Butler as Aufidius.

I have been rather occupied with a lot of things, including moving house. Just settling in and I hope to post more images of my trip to Bath.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
