Well, here I am sitting on bench in the sunshine at Jesus College
waiting for a lecture to start entitled “Britain- Should I Stay or Should I Go?” about the vote in June on if the UK should leave EU or not, the vote is very close! My sense of the vote is, unless the stay side can be very factual and specific on why they should stay, they could be in trouble!
I spent week in York, busy with programs and traveling to a lovely seaside town called Whitby,
when you travel outside of Cambridge the prices really go down, sometimes in half!
People here have been very friendly and helpful, I get invited out for coffee and to events etc. The energy in Cambridge is very high and I am attending Plays, Lectures,
and Conferences (about International Relations) all which are open to public for 5 or 10 pounds, I just love the involvement, the University has a great website for what they call Public Engagement.
My friends Elizabeth and Richard have a beautiful home close to Cambridge (pictures below),
and the Vicar said a special prayer for the fires in Alberta.
I have always said I would never go to Africa again, well NEVER say NEVER! I have been invited to Goma in the Congo in September, the VISA process is brutal, but I will stay with friends, so it should be safe and I am told that part of Africa is very beautiful!
I paid a visit to my National Health Insurance Doctor, who for 10 minutes told me what was wrong with NHS, at the end I said, “I would never hired him to do PR”, and he laughed!
Justin Trudeau was all over the media, with the pushing incident, but they also put his apology on the front page.
I just realized have been here for month and haven’t even travelled to London yet (it’s 50 minutes away by train).
