Summer arrived in Cambridge as it should, with stunning weather. I love Europe in summer, long days, warm nights, more opportunities to relax and bask in all the good things Europe has to offer. Tomatoes smell like they should, and taste even better. Even unreliable rockmelons (or cantaloupes if you will) are generally worth the effort.
Cambridge is an exceptionally good place to be in summer. The abundance of time-rich students means a mélange of social opportunities, whatever your taste. Yesterday afternoon I played social football on Parker’s Piece, followed by some basking in the sun, followed by a play at the ADC Theatre, part of the Pacifika Styles festival happening this week. The football was great fun – you can read more about it courtesy of Joan Ko here. The play was also fantastic, one of the best I’ve ever seen. If you get the chance to see Niu Sila in your neck of the woods I highly recommend it.
Tomorrow is Strawberry Fair on Midsummer’s Common – the first of many laid-back summer celebrations I love Europe for. Bring on the summer.
