St Mary street is one of the main streets of central Cardiff – the capital city of Wales and a city like any other in the UK. The street is one of the main hubs of clubs and pubs of the city. Sooner or later most party goers end up on that street. The street is closed for cars on Saturday nights and together with adjoining alleys and lanes becomes the main scene of fuelled by alcohol and emotions city’s nightlife. Everything takes place in public – from drinking, fighting, kissing to crying and sleeping. Supermen chat up Playboy Bunnies, somebody lies on the pavement taking a nap, the hungry ones finish their portions of chips and the policemen stop another argument or fight. Nobody seems to worry about tomorrow, what matters is here and now. Then another week at work or university, until the next weekend.
