bradford - couple

I spend quite a lot of time in either Leeds or Bradford. One thing I've noticed is that people in Bradford go round in groups or couples much more than they do in Leeds. Usally there is a lot more interaction between people – smiling, laughing, joking, arguing, fighting.

In Bradfoird there seems to be quite a lot of alternative and interesting people – much less uniform and much more individual.
