‘The Other Place’ – October 2014

After the madness of the beginning of the academic year…

…I took myself off to Cambridge.

The irony of settling everyone into to Oxford…

….and then heading off to the Fens, didn’t escape me.

Whisper it…but I think that Cambridge is prettier than Oxford.

That’s partly because the river…

…flow through the middle of the city.

I was most taken with these lions outside the Fitzwilliam…

…this chemist’s sign (above a shop that’s still a chemist)…

…this chap’s fangs…

…that the Cavendish Lab was so posh when it built, that it has it’s own postbox…

….the ‘Round Church’…

…and this little ruin.

Good thing that my Ma or Dr Bones didn’t see it, as they’d want to move in!

When not wandering around the city I had a lovely garden to read in.

For Virginia…

The post-boxes in Morocco are the boring French yellow ones. Adam took this pic of a post office in Marrakech for the collection, as it’s a bit more exciting :-).

For Virginia…

I think the lovely Virginia commented on this post-box when we visited Lechlade a few years ago. It’s interesting that it’s still painted red. Disused boxes are usually painted black…
…like this rather nice old stamp machine.
