Place: Cambridge

I can’t possibly cover all the sights in Cambridge in a single post. So, I’m putting up a post on one of my favorite spots – Trinity Street. As the name suggests, this street has got its name from one of the most famous colleges of Cambridge, Trinity College. Almost all tourists start from this street and head to the different attractions presented by this city.

My days of stay in this city maybe coming to an end, earlier, I used to walk along the streets with no purpose, just to enjoy – the architecture of the buildings, the monuments, the Backs, the well maintained gardens, the narrow streets, the walls, the Sun clocks… Now this is an effort to store some of those sights on film, err… digital storage media.

The most difficult task I’m facing currently is to select the pictures for this blog, from the huge collection of snaps I have.

As usual I can’t possibly resist heading towards the Backs, the weather being fine, there was considerable traffic for Punting on the River Cam.

These snaps were taken three months back, in winter.

Braille! There are two models (metal casts) of this city. One of the casts covers the central part of the Cambridge city in better detail, the part which tourists visit. I can assure you Cambridge is more than just this central part, every city is.Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I present you the central part of Cambridge with Bi-cycles (very much part of the Cambridge culture) as a backdrop. Even the Blind can visualize the Grandeur of this city!

I know, I know, the title of this post is not justifying the contents, but, Trinity Street is where a major percentage of the tourists start their expedition from.

I came here with a missionunderstanding the people, to get a better visionprejudiced I stood, the initial few daystrying to prove, I had seen better dayswhen the day of return has come nearI stand more confused than clear(These simple yet profound lines are by Anoop himself!!)My comment about your photos is same! I was prejudiced that I have seen some great photos – photos of Chamundi hill, Kukkarahalli kere, Kaggadaspura, Mekedatu, Karanji kere – which are very close to my heart. So thought your blog lost its charm for me when I saw blurry photos of Bangalore to London:) But now when I look back and see – moon to the side of the tree, lovely cottages, Cathedral West Tower, lovely climate that day, first view of the magnificent cathedral, The Bench, cows, House on the banks of River Cam, Grand entrance, The Backs, Kings chapel on the left, Inside Kings College – when the day of return has come near I stand more confused!!!

Keshav: I think you are exaggerating about this place being heaven, nope, no way near it :). And dude, thanks for praising me yet again. Your praises are not exactly helping me in my efforts to remain modest, hehe..P Kalyan: What do i say here..? All visitors: I will be in India for 2-3 weeks starting from 25th of this month. Why am I mentioning it here? – because, I’m too excited and looking forward for my stay in India.
