Last week flew by and I happily ticked another picture off the Scavenger Hunt list (and absolutely no doubt about this one filling the criteria)
3. A framed view
We went to Cambridge on Wednesday which is possibly my most favourite place to go shopping. Just love the atmosphere there and as we passed Corpus Christi College I realised that this is a perfect example of the wonderful university architecture in the city. It makes it look as if we were the only people there doesn't it? Well we weren't - I had to wait for dozens of Chinese tourists to move out of the way so I could get a picture of the building framed nicely inside the archway. Because Cambridge is so popular with visitors, this time of year you can often feel that, apart from the university students, you are one of the few English people there!
I also love going to Cambridge because there is a tiny Sicilian restaurant there called Aromi where they do fabulous snack lunches. You have to get there early as by 12.30 all the tables are full. It's not smart and it's not fancy, you sit on stools up at wooden trestle tables but the flavour of the food - oh wow. I can never manage anything sweet after I've had my favourite - Spianata Saporita (pancetta, provola cheese, roasted peppers, caramelised onions and parsley sandwiched between glorious Italian sourdough bread and toasted) but Paul always manages one of their occur di bue biscuits - two rounds of thin shortbread with pistachio cream in the middle.
I realise now that I'm home again that I missed a perfect opportunity to tick off another picture for Pedal Power. Cambridge is a real cyclist city - and I could easily have found a photo opportunity. Oh well, a perfect excuse to go back again soon! Talking of cyclists, the lady who takes my Zumba class was in London last weekend and while walking back to the tube station, was passed by dozens and dozens of cyclists - but not any ordinary cyclists, they were all naked 😳 How uncomfortable would that be? She showed us a couple of photos she took as proof - there was one exhibitionist happy to have his photo taken, let's just say he had indulged in some rather clever body art in the guise of an elephant. I'll leave you with that image in your mind ...
