How I came to Brighton
I travelled in Australia and South East Asia between 1988 and 1990, after
I graduated from Keele University.
Some friends I met up with in Australia came back to England ahead of me
and moved to Brighton, where I followed when I ran out of money. I fell
in love here, both with the town and someone in it, so I stayed.
What I like about Brighton
Brighton's small enough to live within walking distance of friends, pubs
and clubs. It doesn't suffer too much from small town mentality, though.
It keeps an open mind. The Royal
Pavilion, my favourite building, is a camp, gaudy imitation of the
Taj Mahal that reflects the town's character as a bit of a show off. No one seems to want to grow up here.
What I dislike about Brighton
The sea's too polluted and dirty to swim in. No one seems to want to grow up here.
