[ Cambridge ] 劍橋大學的另一面

[ 劍橋大學的另一面 ]

“It says ‘Private’ here ‘though… We’re trespassing…."
“It’s silly. We’ll just go through here."

So we roamed through Cambridge with our special guide to Cambridge off-limit zones, his favourite bars and an interesting dinner at a formal hall. The weather was rather brutal in the afternoon but…. (continue reading…)

託 Dennis 的福, 我們得以自由穿梭在劍橋學院的 “Private" 區. 幾乎無視於它的存在. :p  Too bad 天氣下午急轉直下, 大風大雨 + 超級冷. 本來還想天啊… 晚上還要去 formall hall 嗎??! 我想回 London…不過還好我們…

… 還是堅持到最後一刻! Yay! 😀

————————————————————-
… we managed to stay until 7:30 for the formal hall dinner.

A lot of bikes lying around. Afterall this is the most convenient way to get around Cambridge and students are “technically" not allowed to have car here (need approval from school).
東倒西歪的腳踏車,這可是這邊最有效率的交通工具。

University Museum of Zoology – the huge whale.
動物學博物館外的大鯨魚.
Museum website: http://www.museum.zoo.cam.ac.uk/

“Well… there’s a lot of dead things in here…" There goes our “guide’s" introduction of the place to us. lol.
我們的 Cambridge PhD “導覽" 一進這的 intro 介紹是:  “嗯..這邊有很多死的東西"… (笑)

 

Someone got so hungry so we had to find places to eat. Apparently there weren’t a lot of options. That’s also why a lot of students would go to London quite often.
有人餓到不行所以我們找吃的地方去. 果然沒太多選擇.難怪學生常去倫敦.
裡面居然包 meat ball…
There’s meat ball in there..
I like the color of this one. Looks quite “scholarly" exotic (heh??) … although it’s a wine store.
我喜歡這張的感覺. 有點有書香氣息的 exoticism. 雖然這是一間賣酒的店…

Some very expensive clock that has a grasshopper eating time.
不知道為什麼很吸引人目光的時鐘(上面是隻吃著時間的蚱蜢).
The weather got kinda bad later in the afternoon so we went into the colleges. Since it’s off-term now so most of the students are not around.
天氣一不好,我們就開始走入學生放假去的校園裡。也就是那些寫著 Private 的地方。
A “kitchen" in a college with lots of empty wine bottles.
一間 College 的廚房。裡面也太多酒了吧…

A lot of pretty rooms in colleges.
許多 college 裡面都有許多很漂亮或典雅的房間。

There are lots of empty, not-very-much-used rooms in Cambridge colleges too. This is a pretty nice study room. Looks like a social room rather. So dead quiet in there as we waited for the rain.  Could easily fall asleep in there.
劍橋有許多舊+不常用的空間。我們到了這間 college 的 study room 躲雨,看起來很有氣質吧? :p 這裡面超安靜的,真的很容易睡著.

 

The study room has all kinds of books, including some Good Bear Guide.
這間 Study Room 裡居然還有關於啤酒的書。
Chapel of King’s College. Closed for Easter musical rehearsal.
國王學院的禮堂。今天有 performance rehearsal 所以不能進去。
The formal dining hall of another college prep. for a conference we supposed.
另外一個學院的禮堂,應該是準備給什麼 conference 之後的晚餐。

“There’s a nice bar here.. The bar is not so nice here.." So apparently my dear friend identifies each college by how good the bar is. This one is secretly hidden in some cellar of a college.
所以我們開始跟著 D. 走入他的劍橋酒吧世界。這間很隱密在一間學院以前的酒窖裡。


Inside the bar. Not open for now.
在 bar 裡面, 一樣沒開。


There are some jazz performances here at night. This is a pretty nice place I must say.
不過聽說這邊晚上偶爾有爵士樂的表演,聽起來就很讚。

 

There’s a Bridge of Sighs in Venice. There’s one in Cambridge as well, but for students.
威尼斯有個奈何橋,劍橋也有個學生的"奈何橋"。


People down there punting. Originally Mr. D was going to punt as well… but the weather wasn’t too great so we didn’t exactly want to be stuck on a punt when it’s pouring rain + super windy. lol. Not to mention falling into that “800 years of pollution".
橋下在 punting 的人. 本來我們的 D 先生也要充當船夫,但看大風大雨,我們還是饒了 D 先生 (笑) . xD
其實我們也不想掉入那 D 先生所說的 “800年的汙染".

 

Charles Darwin’s office!
“達爾文在嗎?我們留個信吧"
Got too cold and hungry so we ran into the nearest restaurant to devour a huge pizza and drank lots of tea as we waited for the dinner.
冷 + 餓到不行所以衝進最靠近的一間餐廳,吃了超大 pizza
+ 喝了很多熱茶。 

Finally dinner time! Had it at the Christ College. Usually it’s quite formal – in terms of dress code but, again, it’s off-term now, so it’s not so formal this time.
終於等到了晚餐。在 Christ College 不是很 formal 的 formal hall.

 

  
The three courses we had. Thanks to D for the great experience and a fun day! 😀
我們的三道菜 – appetizer, main course + desert. 結束我們二次造訪劍橋的小旅行.
