I arrived in Cambridge to a drizzly, grey day, though it was possible to find a little color in the grounds of a small, old, church.
I had visited Cambridge once when I was a schoolkid, but I have almost no memories of it.
One thing I do remember is punting on the River Cam.
A lot of the colleges have nice gardens.
Like its older counterpart in Oxford, Cambridge gets a lot of tourists, but I think Oxford gets more.
You are never far from one of the 31 colleges that make up Cambridge University, the oldest was founded in the 13th Century.
More Nobel Prize winners hail from Cambridge University than any other single institution in the world.
Every college has its own chapel.
I also stopped in at the Fitzwilliam Museum.
