Hi everyone, well it is still raining cats and dogs... its raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring (Nick) on our bus to Oxford, I think that he is catching up on all of sleep that he has not had back home....anyway, we arrived in Oxford and saw the amazing architecture of Oxford University....there are about thirty-nine colleges in all of you will see in some of our pictures of the Bodleian Library, the Radcliffe Camera and Christ Church(this is where the Harry Potter stories are based). Next, we drove thru the Cotswolds, which was beautiful countryside. A lot of the buildings had thatched roofs which were made of straw bundles and held down by chicken wire. Unfortunately, we do not have any pictures of these buildings as we did not stop in this area. We then arrived in Stratford-Upon-Avon and toured thru the birthplace of William Shakespeare....this was in the original building from the 1500's....quite an interesting little house. We walked down to the Avon River...the river and canals in Central England are still used to transport people and goods on gondolas...we continued on to Warwick Castle which is now owned by The Tussauds Group...we toured the State Rooms and a wax figurine enactment of the Royal Weekend Party from 1898. We also toured the Mill and Engine House which still works to produce electricity for the Castle to this day. Nick and I climbed numerous stone stairs up to The Tower and Ramparts which was quite high (I got a bit dizzy going around and around and around) but the view from up above was incredible.

Bye for now.
