Excellent piece Jonathan! I'll have to get to Athens! Having lived in several big university towns, it always amazed me just how connected the university is to those towns and daily life. Several have alumni staying to live or moving back later in life.

Your scenes of Broad Street are very familiar to me, my address when I visit Oxford. The photo at top shows the buildings that were the view from my top-floor window in May, the one near the bottom the whole block with my hotel, The Buttery, just past the orange buildings. And the familiar bicycle scene at the station. One of my favorite places and why I return to that street as often as I can manage. Very nice, thanks.

Great pictures of Oxford. We went to Oxford for a day on our trip to England 3 years ago. A wonderful city to wander around in. We had dinner at the Crown pub, supposedly a place Shakespeare would stay at on trips between London and Stratford. Thanks for the memories.
