Being in on the joke

I noticed this sign while going for a massage in Manchester:

Manchester is in northern England, commonly referred to as “the North.” As a Game of Thrones fan, I quite enjoyed this reference. (And after that massage I do think the title fits here!)


While visiting Manchester, I decided to wander into the Manchester Museum. It definitely caters to children, although it has plenty to interest adults as well. I got a bit overwhelmed by the noise in the main exhibition halls and wandered into a somewhat quieter area with a special collection called Object Lessons.

I was quite taken by all the models, including these flowers, mushrooms, and even jellyfish.
