At Oxford, City of Dreaming Spires and Special Delights

Yesterday I went back to one of my favourite places, Oxford. What a delight to be there in the merry month of May, fourth week in Trinity Term! The weather was fine, so I was rejoicing as I walked by the ancient colleges, along splendid streets and architectural wonders.

The Ashmolean Museum has improved so much, and I was amazed to see how much better it is since it re-opened in 2009. I had a wonderful time there yesterday afternoon. Tremendous!

The roof garden restaurant is recommended.

I am a life member of the Oxford Union.

I was privileged to have been a post graduate student at Regent's Park College.

Anyone for croquet?
