For the first time in a long while, our school had a power cut yesterday night. Our school gets the occasional power cut and as the building where the foreign teachers live doesn't have a generator, we usually stay in the dark the longest. My room mate Charlie and I decided that we might as well go for a walk, so we had a wander around Shiqiaopu (the area where we live) and got to see it at night.

York is famous for its city walls which are hundreds of years old and also for its magnificent Gothic cathedral.

This is my second year w ...
