May Week, and the less famous city

I’m back in the East of England.

I was in Cambridge on Tuesday afternoon (pictured) for the Queen’s College garden party, Darwin literature garden party (or something) and fireworks on the river, and will be back on Friday for the Darwin College May Ball. At the moment I’m in Norwich.

People in Cambridge and London may be derogatory about Norwich but I really like it. It’s a bit like Adelaide in relation to Melbourne or Sydney; great lifestyle, culture and research facilities. Locals prefer to keep quiet about how great it is, to avoid the price rises and onslaught from more famous cities.

If I were to move back to England I would move to Norwich (and go to Cambridge for May Week every year, and the odd formal hall).

(not going to happen though)
