We only had one afternoon in Chester, but it was enough to enjoy a bit of its lively atmosphere. I had read it was one of the best preserved walled cities in England, full of medieval buildings and other attractions. Chester is also known for its horse races, but that's not what we had come for ....

:: the Eastgate clock, said to be the most photographed clock in England after Big Ben

:: gorgeous black and white medieval buildings (I learned later that some are actually Victorian reconstructions)

:: the Rows are a series of two floored walkways full of shops, also dating from the medieval era. These are unique to Chester

:: Chester castle

:: back at the hotel, S. made a new friend (obviously we had to bring one home with us)

:: delicious Thai dinner, the perfect ending to a well spent day
