Just touched down in the USA, after an eventful five-day visit to the UK & already my trip to Oxford is beginning to feel like something of a waking dream...
With a population of 155,000, the city is home to the University of Oxford, the oldest in the English-speaking world and features truly impressive architecture
Interesting pop culture reference:
Oxford locations, such as the Bodleian, New College and Christ Church, appear in the Harry Potter films.
Here are a few pictures from a walking tour that my wife and I took, just hours before my talk at the University:
In comparison to the US, being in Oxford felt like traveling in time—-steeped as this university town is in history and old world culture.
I do hope that these pictures might whet your appetite to pay this charming town a visit. 🙏🏼
Meantime, for contrast, here’s a cture from Carnaby street, in London, where I spent a few days for a family reunion. Mercifully, Brexit did not take place when I was there & I managed to avoid any protests. Phew
