Hi. Welcome to Liverpool, England. Come in and see the living room. I came to Liverpool when I was 18 years old as a student, and I’ve lived in different houses around Liverpool.

And eventually from money left by family, got a deposit for a house, and I bought this one.

So I live here at the moment with myself and two other doctors, James and Steve and our cat Ernesto.

Follow me in.

It’s actually a poster by a local artist who took thousands of photos, and then put them all together to make one view of the whole city. So you can see the whole city of Liverpool in one view. It’s just really nice.

They are quite a traditional English thing I think, stain glass, I suppose it really brightens up the room.

The art is Banksy a British graffiti artist who does British comedy graffiti on walls and buildings around the UK. And my brother got it for me for Christmas. I think it’s really funny.

I really sorry guys, but the football is about to start so you’re going to have to get out of the house. See you.
