Didn’t we have wonderful time – the time we went to Cambridge…As the song nearly said. Today was my first day out of the the closed cocoon I’ve been inhabiting in since November last year. We visited the Alfred Wallis exhibition and it didn’t really matter whether it was any good or not (it was very good) it was a day out.
Walking around Cambridge was really strange as there was something missing. For a while we couldn’t work out what it was but then it struck us – no foreign tourists. Instead the town was full of university staff, academics and of course students. It was rather peaceful. (I know technically we were tourists but somehow an hour and half drive doesn’t really doesn’t feel like tourism – look its my blog so I make the rules!) It does make one wonder what central London is like?
Hopefully this is the start of the recovery but I really don’t things will ever be quite the same again. Only time will tell.
