    Smile A delightful weekend in Cambridge :: I'm back

    Hi guys gals and others,

    I just got back from what was a delightful and fulfilling weekend out in London on Friday, I then visited Cambridge on Saturday which was an interesting expericence in itself.
    Whilst in Cambridge we visited a Tapas bar and (to my surprise) my pork loins in breadcrumbs came with a side order of lettuce worm. But thats a different story!!!
    Anyway, whilst in Cambridge we visited most of the universities and college complexes - I was very impressed at both the environment and atmospere of Cambrdge.
    No idots - no misbeviour - just a low level of quiet and polite chatter. The general atmospere was very exciting...

    It's certainly a place I would consider living / studying in, in the future.

    Would any of you guys like to visit Cambridge in the future or which of you have already done so? What did you think of it and why? Do you live in Cambridge? Are you a student? Tell all.

    I've been to Cambridge. It was certainly a nice place with an immense amount of history. We ate at a little cafe, whose food was mediocre, but the atmosphere was nice.

    Supposedly only upperclassmen can walk on the grass on the campus, so it's obviously a rather pretentious school. Nonetheless, if I were English, I wouldn't mind going there.

    Yes, me and my dad tried to walk across the grounds and have a peek at the campus grounds but a rather astute looking women eyed us, came over to us and asked us sarcastically to "peek through there", pointing to the admissions tour box.
    However, I would maintain that it is a great place.

    Been from england, to be honest, i always thought of people at oxbridge (oxford and cambridge) as been snobs. I imagined everyone walking around discussing politics and not having any real fun.

    As i've grownup ive started to appeaciate the peace and quite a bit more, but when it comes down to it, i'ed rather be out in a club

    Cambridge is certainly a nice area, but there are lots of parts in the uk that are nice, the lake district for example.
