Oxford Again, 2013

Rebecca studied at Oxford one summer a decade ago and was there another time too and so wanted to visit her old haunts again. We spent a pleasant day walking about, seeing the sights, the haunts, shopping, resting in the park, and more. Not pictured: lunch at Chiang Mai, a Thai restaurant that has become a family favorite since she discovered it and took us there in 1998. As sometimes happens, the food was so good I forgot the documentation. Not least the coconut ice cream served in the half shell.
We always go to the Bodleian Library, which had a special
exhibit on "Magical Books," aka fantasy, something Vicki
and Rebecca both enjoy; Professor Tolkien was amply

John Bodley, founder of the Bodleian: "we
must preserve our precious Bodley fluids"

I never miss the School of Metaphysics; which is now the
receiving office; sic transit, Gloria

Mailbox, the old-fashioned way; could have been a prop
from Harry Potter

Radcliffe Camera; and turbuss contingent

The glory of Oxford...yes, but how many players do they 
have in the NFL?
