Light Switch-On and Christkindlemarkt

Town Hall with Leeds International Film Festival poster. We went to see the new Wuthering Heights, but it was far too artsy...even darker & more violent & disturbing than the book!
Light switch-on night

Frankfurters for dinner at the Christkindlemarkt!

Drinking our hot honey mead--it's delicious!
It was opening night, so it was packed!
