Short Cambridge foray

Christ College, Cambridge

I just returned from Cambridge, after a long coach ride in the same clothes I wore last night, on account of having forgotten the change of clothes I packed in Wadham. Largely due to time constraints, I saw hardly any of Cambridge. I saw the inside of Christ College, where we had dinner, and some of the surrounding streets. From the coach, I saw the river.

Like St. John’s College, in Oxford, Christ College seems to extend back in fairly linear fashion from the porter’s lodge. Meeting some of the students at our sister college, as well as a surprising number of Wadham graduates who I don’t recall having spoken with before, made it a fairly good use of 24 hours. The knowledge that I only have 15 days left before my qualifying test led to me going to bed enormously earlier than most people seem to have done.

Obviously, I will need to return at some point. I am off to shower and get back to reading.

PS. Mica has two new videos online.

Too bad you saw so little of cambridge. Not ideal travel time when you should be revising.

Good luck with that.

Clever composition today, though it doesn’t scream ‘Cambridge’ to me.

How’s the studying going?

Another photo of an OxBridge quad seemed less interesting than this one, though I agree that it isn’t very classical looking.
