We're leaving today

on a vacation! And I still have a couple pictures left from our trip to London! (technically, outside of London, but whatever.)

After our adventure at Blenheim and lunch in Woodstock*, we made our way by bus to Oxford, which wasn't far away and was the best place to catch a train back to London.

And then it occurred to me - we were going to Oxford, as in Oxford the school. We should totally see that before we head back.

To the train station? Or to the University?

And Graham complied.

So Alex and I explored the campus of
Christ Church, one of the largest colleges in the University of Oxford. It was really beautiful.

Upon seeing the dining hall, I said to Alex - This makes me think of Harry Potter.
Turns out that this is the dining hall from the movies.
I'm, like, soooo observant.

Any Lost fans out there?

I'm glad we took the time.

Rowers were here!!

We're headed to Greece this evening (hooray!) for a real (i.e., more than 72 hour) vacation. You'll hear from us upon our return.

* Oh, and the Pimm's cup (as featured in the last post), in case anyone cares, is essentially (in concept more than in flavor) British sangria.

Sort of. No, it's not made with wine. But it's refreshing and is served with chopped up fruit (and cucumbers). Essentially, it is Pimm's (a gin-based liqueur that is infused with herbs) mixed with lemonade (and possibly something fizzy like ginger ale), infused with mint, and topped with fruit (in this case, amazingly sweet, fresh strawberries) and cucumbers. It works, you'll just have to trust me on this one.
