Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore! To say Cardiff was a change of pace from the Cotswolds would be an understatement. I must say I'm a bit biased towards the English and find them to be a friendlier and more welcoming lot than the Welsh. To be fair our only interaction with Welsh was in Cardiff but even in London, I found the English to be more to my liking.
We got into town a little before dinner and took a taxi to Cardiff Bay. Yes, I know we had a car but driving in Cardiff was a bit taxing...again, the Welsh were very quick to toot their horns at me and with all the construction in town, Penny was constantly "recalculating" because of the wrong turns I was taking. Our driver was a bit chatty...not a Welshman -- he was an Afghan and been in Wales for almost 5 years.
