Union Street, not a place for children.Graffity freshly painted on the cold mossy walls; chewing gum and dogs mess populate the street. The cumbering pavement is forgotten about. The smell of urine makes you gag you can taste the filf as you try to get some fresh air. Cars listlessly wait for their drunken owners. The ticking of the engine and the scurry of a rat is all you can hear.

Hung-over. Dribs and drabs of people stagger home with unmade hair and dirty clothes trying to remember what happened the night before and why their top has a big hole in the back. The awaking smell of coffee fills the air and makes you mouth water as star bucks opens. The pavements are occupied with the street cleaner whistling to a merry tune.
Stray cats root threw the bins to try find scraps of kebab and thrown out restaurant food. School children push and shove o be the first one to get the best seat on the bus. Cars hoot their horns and shout at the idiot who decides to over take the car in front even though there is no room. Cleaners come out...
