Where I stayed

Flag of United Kingdom  , England,
Friday, October 2, 2009

From Dover we took the train to London, hopped on the subway over to another train which carried us non-stop to Cambridge.

Here we met the AHT (remember them) director of sales for the UK to discuss selling our ice cream carts here.  We had a great discussion with him at the Royal Cambridge Hotel over a cold Guiness and creamed tea.  I had the Guinness, Maggie had the tea. Creamed tea means they bring you scones and clotted cream with jam to eat with your tea.  I tried one, too. Delicious.  Over the next few weeks we are going to continue our discussions but it looks good for Magnolia Carts to finally expand overseas.

A taxi then took us all to our bed and breakfast (no more hostels), where we checked in and then trekked to the college to see Shelby's room.  (She and Grandma had checked her in while we were meeting the AHT guy.)

Shelby's dorm room has to be the nicest dorm room we have ever seen for a first-year (the term is "Fresher" over here) college student.  Bed, sofa, sink, fireplace (with built-in space heater), and lots of bookcases.  And she doesn't have a roommate!

And the grounds at her college, Trinity College, are just amazing.

The old town where the college is located is full of old world beauty and charm.

Tomorrow we say our goodbyes to her and head to London to our hotel for the night so we can get on our plane bright and early Sunday morning...see you all soon!

You're there!
Oh, Shelby, Cambridge looks just right for you. It is so beautiful and I'm really excited for you. Please let me know if you have email as I'd love to have as many updates as you wish to send.
Much love,
Martha

P.S. I'll be mighty glad to have your grandma come home too!
