Just in case anyone reading this blog thinks that Cambridge is all cobbled alleys; or that the University consists entirely of grand stone buildings; or that everyone studies Latin, Greek or ancient history; or indeed that it always rains in England, then they should study the picture above.
It shows the guided busway and pedestrian/cycle path leading towards Addenbrooke's Hospital on the outskirts of Cambridge. As well as being Cambridge University's teaching hospital it's also the site of the Rosie Maternity Hospital and innumerable laboratories and research facilities. The cranes in the top picture are engaged in building AstraZeneca's new UK headquarters and the new Papworth Heart Hospital is also under construction nearby. Below are the new labs of the Medical Research Council.
Unfortunately I was not visiting merely to admire the architecture or sheer scale of the place but to visit my mother in Bed 3, Bay C, Ward C4. The good news is that she's now home again but still needing a lot of help and care, so posts on this blog might not be so full or frequent for a while.
