Photo Journal: Elmside

Today we finally got all the necessary things together (internet connection, camera, free time) to take a few pictures around town to show everyone at home. So here's our first Cambridge blog entry: a small tour of our house.

Here's the front gate to our building, Elmside.

This is our building as viewed from the back garden.
We're the middle set of windows on the top floor!

The common room is good for eating, watching TV,
and getting our house mates addicted to Set.

The kitchen is where the magic happens.
So long as the magic is salty.

Doggie and Tedso make sure no one uses our bed while we're gone.
Doggie is sporting a very fashionable Clare Hall scarf these days.

Bees like to fly in our windows, looking out over Scholars Garden.
Sometimes Clare Hall has barbeques here, with more salty food.
And beer.

The sunlight looks really cool coming in our festive curtains in the morning.

All-in-all, Elmside is a lovely place to live. It's more warm and toasty than I had expected from a Civil-War-Era home, and our house-mates are nice. Clare Hall (our College) loans out art from its collection to decorate rooms with, so we should be getting some art pieces soon. Also, it's very near by the site where Lewis has all his classes, and only across the lawn from the main College building + dining hall. We've done well.

A "virtual-tour" of Cambridge will follow!

Looks like you even have a proper kettle for your afternoon tea.
I'm glad you are so cozy in chilly England!
