I’ve been living in Newbury just over a week now. The place seems alright. The rumors about it that I had heard were much worse than it’s turned out to be. It’s an old market town in the countryside in england, and it’s just as you expect. There are some quite picturesque parts of it, there’s lots of pubs, the bars and nightclubs are quite average, and everyone here seems to work for Vodafone. Food seems expensive, the Thai here is awful, I’m yet to try some fish n’ chips and a curry, but I’ll bet they’re good. I would like to spend more time here, I’ve met some good people, but I need to find a place to live more permanently, and it sadly won’t be Newbury.
