Spring has sprung

Spring has arrived in England. It’s gorgeous. As much as climate change might have ruined the Australian snowfields, they’re making the East of England unusually pleasant! Although temperatures are a little lower still, this is the first week since I’ve been here that more sun is forecast in England than Australia.Daffodils are popping up everywhere while trees are in blossom. This photo was taken in Grantchester, a tiny town close to Cambridge, accessible via a bumpy path that my Aussie mate Luke and I traversed on bicycles last weekend. Ian was in London, watching one of the guys from his course, the Master Chess player of Jamaica, and more Cambridge crew take on the Oxford chess club. Cambridge won, of course.

I never thought I’d see the day that Ian would choose to watch a chess tournament rather than go to the pub and enjoy beers in the garden on a beautiful day – but there you go. Cambridge has that influence on people.
