Oct 6, 2006 - Canterbury

Back in UK, sitting in a campground in Canterbury. No change in the weather, just as miserable as last week in France, but that was to be expected! About to head into town & post a for sale advertisement for Gippy - fingers crossed now! Time to play the waiting game...

Took another British side trip to see my mate from my South African Expedition. Since I was so ill when she came to see me in Mozambique, I thought I best do a visit when I am ready for anything!! Kirsty: another full of life, do anything at any moment, yet incredibly spiritual woman; is always a treat to be around. Could not come to England and not pay a visit. Makes me laugh and cry all at the same time. She has a talent that's for sure. She has this accent one could depict miles and miles away. One of kind. A diamond in the rough. (you...

One of the professor's from ASU, Cora Fox showed us where to find the post office, the grocery store, the dollar store and the bus and rail stations. We also saw some of the historic sights including the descendant of the apple tree made famous by Sir Isaac Newton. It grows in the same lawn as its ancestor. The river Cam runs through town and you can hire a punt (a small boat dubiously piloted using a long...

Jun 19, 2005 - Day 8

This morning we took a bus into Kent to visit Charles Darwin's house, known as "Down House," where he lived after his marriage to Emma Wedgewood (interesting side-note: before marrying her he drew up a list of the advantages and disadvantages of having a wife), from 1842 until his death in 1882. Knowing that I was standing inside the room (Darwin's study), where he wrote "On the Origin of Species" and seeing the backgammon table where he played to relieve stress or sometimes simply displayed his specimens when they had overrun his other...
