Leaving Oxford

"And that sweet city with her dreaming spires, she needs not June for beauty's heightening"
-- Matthew Arnold --
.
Oxford University has got 39 colleges. The Said Business School is located at Templeton College.
.
Our class was 45 vp's, cxo's and directors from 21 countries. Good discussions and great professors that lecture at Oxford, MIT and Harvard.
.
.
.
These weeks students attend their finals. Students attend these finals wearing "subfusc" - formal academic dress -. Fellow students smear them with flower and everything else they find in trashcans to congratulate them afterwards..
.
.
I had a great time and met some wonderful new friends from Dubay, Quwait, South Africa, New Zealand, USA, Australia and Europe. Now I'll go dust the tables and put the chairs outside.
.
CAFEDA has to be opened again next monday. Drinks will be on the house, spread the word!!

Wonderful pics! How can a man feel loneliness in such a place...!?? hm... Perhaps one day I'll come to Amsterdam, and we can be alone together...! I like to share... also sharing stories about the brittish people! (Since I've been living there myself...!)
