I caught the Mersey beat...




Strawberry Fields

View from Penny Lane




Finally after all these years, I made my pilgrimage. Anyone who's ever known me as a teenager is aware of how passionate, obsessive even, I was over these boys. It was such a joy to finally come, and walk around, and hear those accents (the best accents in the world), to feel the bricks, to pace the streets, to see the sea. I made friends with a lovely Japanese girl, a fellow fan, also on her own, and together we hung in the Cavern and listened to a mersey sound band, named (quite appropriately) the Shakers... NZ and Japan sitting side by side, in a strange place...twas lovely.
