Word for 11/12 – Thick

This tethered balloon hovers over the thick of Bristol, England.  Bristol is a University & science and technology city now.  Historically it was a port involved in the ‘Triangular trade’  of manufactured goods  taken to West Africa where they were exchanged for Africans who were transported to the Americas where most of them became slaves, and then plantation goods (sugar, cotton, rum. rice, & tobacco)  & a few of the Africans were returned to England.

The excellent train service from Bristol makes it a great base for exploring SW England.

  1. I love seeing your pictures from the travels abroad. It’s been so interesting – I’ve only traveled outside of North America once and that was over 40 years ago.
