Looking back on the life in England
Hi, guys! Quiz time!
Where do you think you can find roads without cars, forests without trees, and houses without people?
Can you guess the answer?
I just remembered this quiz. When I was having a welcome party in the international summer school, we had a quiz time. This was one of the questions, and also that was the only question I got right.
Hi, Jim I haven’t heard of the Eden project, and it sounds interesting. I know that England is really green, not only the countryside but the cities as well, there are many parks and so many people go on a picnic when the weather is fine. And it’s good to see that people go for a stroll there, children play with their friends, people just sit on the grass reading a book and chatting. I mean that’s something I can’t see in Korea very often. Basically, there are not as many parks here as in England.
I lived in Cambridge, and I had a bike, fortunately, my Chinese friend gave it away to me. Every weekend I went to the city centre, sometimes I went to the big parks and cycled along the Cam River. It normally took about 30minutes to go to the city centre from where I lived by bike. Where I lived is called Girton, which is a small village, and there were two farms just 10 minutes’ walk away, I loved going to the farm as well, there was a baby horse, I guess “she” was really cute, seeing horse so close up was intimidating at first, I think because I hadn’t really seen horses in my life.
Your pictures just reminded me of the time I had in England. I kind of miss it.
So, I’m putting on some pictures. Can anyone who has been to Cambridge recognize these places?

I went to punting twice, and I felt kind of scared, what if I fell into the water?

King's college - this is an impressive building, I was really lucky that I had a change to go in the residence as I knew someone who was a student at king's college and lived in the residence. The library was connected to the residence, and I felt like being in the scene of the film "Harry potter series"
I loved cycling along the river, and this farm was the end of the path where I rode a bike.
I enjoyed every minute in Cambridge. I wasn't a one-week tourist there. While I lived there, I could get to know so many things about the culture and the different ways of life. Also, I learned what it's like being alone and independent.
By the way, I hadn't met any famous person in my life, but when I was in England, Well, I should say I saw two of them rather than met them. One is the Queen ElizabethⅡin Buckingham Palace and the other is Stephen Hawking in Cambridge. He was with two nurses passing the street where I was.
It was nice to look back on. Time flies like a bullet.
Well, See you guys, and It's sad to say that the next blog will be the last.
Have a good day all of you.
