Manchester’s Christmas Market

“Manchester,” Dariya said in a cheerful voice.
I imagined during the trip from London to Manchester what the city would be like.
“There,” Dariya said suddenly, pointing to the city, “we are already at Piccadilly Station.
It was not the closest station to the Christmas market, however, it would only take 18 minutes on foot.
– What can we buy there? Alice announced in an catching voice.
Dariya laughed.


– The market has a little bit of everything, handicrafts, cosmetics, accessories, toys …
“The streets are full of people, it takes some luck to get close to a bench.”
There was no way, no space between the great multitude. The confusion was great and the people were slowing down in front of us as we were passing.
“It’s only a little longer,” I said to Alice.
“I could imagine everything, but mulled wine?”
– Oh, let’s prove it.
I blinked my eyes twice, frowned, and tasted mulled wine for the first time.
“It is delicious,” I said. “It tastes cinnamon, I want to taste everything.”
I agreed and continued walking through the Christmas market.

– Manchester – anunciou Dariya com uma voz alegre.
Imaginava durante a viagem de Londres a Manchester como seria a cidade.
– Ali – exclamou Dariya de repente, apontando para a cidade, já estamos a chegar à estação Piccadilly.
Não era a estação mais próxima do mercado de natal, no entanto demoraria apenas 18 minutos a pé.
– O que podemos comprar lá? – anunciou Alice com uma voz contagiante
– Dariya soltou uma gargalhada.
– O mercado tem um pouco de tudo, artesanato, cosméticos, acessórios, brinquedos…
– As ruas estão repletas de pessoas é preciso alguma sorte para chegar perto de uma bancada.
Não havia nenhuma passagem, nenhuma abertura entre a grande multidão. A confusão era grande e os peões abrandavam à nossa passagem.
– Só falta um bocadinho – incentivo-me Alice
– Imaginei de tudo, mas vinho quente?
– Oh, vamos provar
Pisquei os olhos duas vezes, franzi o sobrolho, e provei pela primeira vez vinho quente.
– Que delicioso – divaguei – O sabor é a canela, quero provar tudo.
Acenei com a cabeça e continuamos a caminhar pelo mercado de natal.
