A Visit to the University of Cambridge

04 Dec. The penultimate MUST visit in the United Kingdom. In fact that was a long desired a visit. These two places have been on my mind for a few decades! University of Oxford and University of Cambridge. To be frank, in my childhood the UK or Britain or more specifically England meant only these two universities: Oxford and Cambridge! 

While Oxford has been very a part and parcel of mine, Cambridge kept eluding me. 

Thanks to my Japanese friend Hiroki Sato, who also wanted to visit Cambridge; and today we made it. 

The vapour-trail that led our Cambridge-to-Oxford coach on an accident-affected highway!
