Oxford

I spent an afternoon in Oxford, which is the oldest university in the english-speaking world, going back to the end of the 12th century. It’s about 2 hours from London by bus. It’s a big college town and sort of reminded me of Ann Arbor but about 400 years older. All the buildings looked really old but very well maintained.

Then this is Christ Church, the largest school at Oxford.

Finally, here’s a couple pics I took from the top of Carfax tower overlooking all of the incredibly tall spires in the city.
