Cambridge 2007

Cambridge, May 2007

Back from a five-day-trip to Cambridge, UK. Visited a close friend of mine who writes his PhD there, lots of fun, some pictures available here.

I haven’t been to the UK for the past ten years, so it was quite a culture shock – mostly positive. First of all, people seem to be much friendlier (at least in Cambridge), say “sorry” for everything, and are really, really cautious. My friend’s apartment is plastered with fire advisory cards, the college didn’t want him to have a couch because it could catch fire, and before leaving you get to read advices to lock all windows, doors and generally be aware of burglars. There’s nothing wrong with all that, it’s just funny since criminality (as well as fires) seems to be almost non-existent there.
