I walked gently, as I came gently; I gently waved, not to the clouds of the West; I waved my sleeves without taking a cloud. Xu Zhimo's famous description of the verses of the University of Cambridge, today's Kangqiao is still beautiful, but visitors are woven, no longer the quiet of the past, wave a sleeve, I am afraid to bring a Chinese tourists. However, it is still a good choice to visit Cambridge on the River Cam.
JACKSON’S travel world
The University of Cambridge is the city of Cambridge itself, passing through the lively open-air market next to King's College, and a variety of small shops are beginning to appear on the roadside. The most traditional industry in Cambridge is the sugar industry, so the candy store is a major feature here, and it is basically a hundred-year-old shop. Compared to the supermarket-like shelves in the city, the candy store here is more like a library, and the books of all tastes are higher than others. If you have a curious taste bud, this is probably a carnival, but if you are not lucky enough to eat an "fennel" taste, you may frown.
In addition to the lively candy store, the most overcrowded at the time of check-in is a robe shop. Although you dont need to wear a robe during class in Cambridge, there are always formal occasions such as the dinner of the dean at the beginning of the school. . In addition to the robe, the store also sells a variety of equipment with various college emblems, such as cups, bags, socks, scarves, sweaters and so on.
As far as I know, "Harry Potter" didn't take a scene in Cambridge, J.K. Rowling also has nothing to do with Cambridge, but what about Hogwarts?
Recall that this kind of equipment is required for admission, the grand president welcomes the dinner, and the various struggles between colleges are not the Hogwarts? Even the weird tastes of the candy store are like the legendary "snake worm" in the diagonal alley.
Maybe Cambridge has nothing to do with JK Rowling's creation, but as a writer who grew up in the UK, her life background and the images we read are actually the traditional British academic culture. Britain itself.
The establishment of Oxford University, the oldest university in the UK, attracted scholars from all walks of life. Later, the number of scholars has completely exceeded the conditions at that time. The contradictions between the aborigines and scholars have intensified and finally put into force conflict. After that, some scholars came to Cambridge and established the earliest Cambridge University.
Cambridge University adopts a college system, and each college maintains a high degree of independence in academic, economic, and management, which also promotes endless competition among colleges, more than academic level, international honor, number of Nobel Prizes, etc. On the one hand, the college hopes to improve its own strength. On the one hand, teachers and students hope for better treatment. So today, this kind of competition has involved all fields, and it is more beautiful than architecture, more spacious than the auditorium, and even more than anyone else. One of the dead families is the famous St. John's College and the Trinity College. The former has William Wordsworth (the poet of the lake), the latter has Newton and Byron; the former has the largest lawn, the latter. It has covered the tallest building... In short, such a struggle has been going on for hundreds of years.
The meeting will meet again.
In Cambridge at King's College on the River Cam in all places, meet the human April day.
Cambridge still has his unique charm, taking a boat trip to Cambridge, passing the bridge, especially the most famous Bridge of Sighs.
The King's College here is basically a must-have for everyone who comes to Cambridge. There is a short opening time every day, and it will take some luck to meet.
Of course, being able to study at King's College is also a very glorious thing.
