Europe CNY 2012 - Day 5 - Cambridge

"Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact." - George Eliot

***

Europe CNY 2012
Day 5 - 23rd January - Cambridge


I've decided to reduce the number of photos I post, sacrificing perfectionism for faster load times (and hopefully finally finishing my travelogues).

My moving to NGNBN has also increased upload speeds. I will also be more ruthless about publishing travelogue entries, even if they push older posts out of the way (e.g. 4 hours ago there was a post on Nice Guys) or otherwise (e.g. Day 4 was just posted, but I'm quite free and am in the mood right now).

Hopefully all of these will speed output. Perhaps I can even stay less than a year ahead of my travels.

The rest can be found on Facebook for those on my friends list anyway.

(See also Day 4 - Cambridge, posted just a short while ago)

Note the Korean-Japanese-Chinese character conversion chart and trilingual signs. Notice what language these signs are not in.

FAIL English teacher/proofreading ad. Note how she didn't bother to update her location after the first mention, and note the English mistakes.

For lunch we went to a Turkish Restaurant. We were there for on the first day, so we profited from a 50% discount!!! At £8,75 the food was excellent value - and the best Turkish food I'd ever had to boot.
Combination kebab platter, mixed mezes, organic homemade bread

Al Amin (Muslim Grocer) mission statement: they don't sell cigarettes because they are harmful (in "when taken in small or larger quantities"). I don't think they sold stuff with transfat either - everything was of Kualiti make,

"Sweet 'N' Spicy. Specialist in Pakistani Halal Cousine"
I hope their food is not sweet (I doubt Pakistani food is). And I hope they don't serve up their female cousins.

"We're going on a Bear Hunt" and other concerts

I went for Evensong at King's College Chapel again. This time I was early so I got to sit inside the choir screen, and the sound was indeed different. On the flip side, sitting at the choir area meant I could hear mistakes.

Halal Golden Buddha - which serves pork (I doubt they have separate food preparation spaces so they probably mean their non-pork meat is Halal-certified)
