It was a great fun to go out after one hell of a week, especially when you chose such a place like Cambridge.
We set out from Warwick in bright sunshine but when we arrived in Cambridge, the sky started to turn grey. Well, it is Britain we are talking about... We started to wander the streets within this nice and small town. Cambridge is so different from Oxford, more quiet and concentrate I'd have to say.
I have been deeply moved by a Korean drama once I saw and my favourite part of it was when the lovely couple cruising along River Cam. And lucky for me, I did it finally! It was absolutely fantastic. We reviewed those famous bridges across river, listened to the stories behind, and embraced the clear air and view from both sides of the river. It was like a mobile gallary.
Cambridge is so connected to Chinese because of a famous poem written by Xu Zhimo. He studied in King's College for one year and wrote this masterpiece, which I believe was his most famous piece. The poem is about departure, combined with sensible description about the scenery. And I could finally understand a little bit after really being in this scene.
Indeed, Cambridge is a place that you can't say goodbye to.
