Jenny and family left for Hungary yesterday morning, leaving me to my own devices until tomorrow, when I fly to Edinburgh. Per Csanad, Jenny's husband's, suggestion, I took a bus to Cambridge. Oh the irony of getting lost on the way to the bus station only to have a car pull up next to me to ask me where to find Albany Road...

I finally did find the X5 bus to Cambridge, and couldn't be more glad that I did. The weather was perfect (a bit humid for my Colorado blood, but it's good for the skin, right?), and it wasn't all that crowded, it being a Monday.

I happened upon the church where I sang with my high school choir six years ago, and bought a 50p souvenier map there. Ah, memories...

Lunch was a baguette filled with brie and grapes that I ate alongside the river. Then the local hawkers persuaded me, with the promise of a 7 very special student discount rate, to take a punting tour of the colleges.

It was indeed quite relaxing to sit back and float under the many gorgeous bridges while a rather attractive young chap with a lovely accent fed the group of us tidbits of trivia. Did you know that there is a bridge in Cambridge where it is still legal to fight a duel to the death?

Today I'm relaxing in the quiet of Jenny's home before heading north tomorrow.
