Welcome back to your unofficial tour of Great Britain. We are off to Cambridge.
Cambridge is most widely known as the home of the University of Cambridge,founded in 1209 and consistently ranked one of the top five universities in the world. Oxford is up there. Collectively, called: Oxbridge.
You have to be very clever to go there. And here, ‘clever’ means exceptionally smart-not just good at soduku. I have known a few people who have attended Oxbridge. And yes they are clever but….they are weird, kooky and are social misfits. They think about things you and I would never dream of. Even in our dreams. Hey, I am not knocking these fantastically wacky people but they are strange. Or can be. I don’t judge. Much.
As you can see, it is a lovely place. Very English. You will see a lot of men in salmon coloured trousers wearing pinkie rings. You will see women in tweed jackets with messy fishtail braids wearing brogues. A quaint place with no shortage of tea rooms. Establishments where you go to drink tea and eat cakes. Really fab.
Of course while you are in Cambridge, you must go punting on the River Cam, have a picnic in the park, a walking tour of the city (am sure they have ghost tours too), visit the University (bring money) and there are museums and art galleries to visit. You may even find a chippy (fish and chip shop), So, you see there is something for everyone there.
It is a lovely town, quite genteel and just by visiting you will be smarter. Think osmosis. Done thinking? Go to Cambridge. You will love it. You would be mad (crazy) not to go.
