Monday - Concert at Great Saint Mary's

A bit slower start today as we prepared to travel uptown again for a rehearsal and the 1:05 concert at Great St. Mary’s the University Church where we took part in worship yesterday. The church goes back many centuries and has a great deal of history. A short break for lunch and then the concert which went well with the ladies adding pink ribbons as an accessory around their waists. After some more time to stroll around, since it was a Bank Holiday, we went back to the hostel and got ready to walk for a group supper at a Thai Restaurant. Tomorrow we have more time in Cambridge until evensong and then the supper at Selwyn College.
PS: Some of us got to the Eagle Pub, famous for being a hang out for WWII flyers in the area and the famous team of Watson and Crick who first described DNA. To sit in such a place with so much history on so many levels is humbling when you come from a land which has a lot less history. Mushy peas it is said will not go on the list of culinary delights we will cherish from our trip. The Cambridge University Press Bookstore is a mecca for teacher types and a great place to shop. The only problem is that there are so many books and so little money.
