Close Encounters of the Oxford High Street Kind

Visited Oxford yesterday, which is delightful. More Americans per square inch than in London though. Also, what we saw at Harvard a few years ago, the eager parents photographing pre-teen Zhuran or Wong-li in front of a building...in a few years, we want you to go here!

Scary moment: crossing Oxford High Street, to get out of the searing sun, my wife was hit by a speeding bicyclist. Combination of my suggestion we both do jaywalking, looking directly into the sun, and my own still unfamiliarity with drivers on the "other" side...scary moment, but she is not injured but very sore and bruised. It helped that she didn't see him coming and thus didn't stiffen.
