Alright, I need to write about my last day before I forget about it! We got to spend our last day at the beautiful Cambridge university. At the beginning of the day, I was annoyed because we had JUST toured Oxford the day before, but by the end of the day I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE! Oh my goodness, it was so wonderful. The markets, the atmosphere, the boys....
After our walking tour we had 5 hours of free time, so we had lunch at a pub recommended by the locals called The Eagle (where the scientist who discovered the double helix form of DNA always used to go), and it was alright, not as good as the food that we'd had at other places, but I mean it was England, so... Anyway, we ate, we shopped, and we went punting. PUNTING. Goodness. Tori and I got the most beautiful tour guide in all of Cambridge. Let me teeeelllllll you. And neither of us can remember his name. It's heartbreaking, really.
On a more serious note, that night we did our very last concert at St. John's, and I can honestly say that I've never been a part of a better concert in my entire life. It was truly amazing. There were SO many OSU students and alumni there, and Burns and Ann Hargis were there, and it was just perfect. We all had so much energy because I think we were just so ready to be done with the performances, but also we were in this absolutely beautiful cathedral surrounded by so much love and support that it was really overwhelming. So wonderful.
After that, Andreas had set up a private party (ooh la la!) at a local pizza place/bar called The Cow. So we all had pizza, Pimms, and tons-o-fun! Somehow we all ended up singing the alma mater and all of the bartenders (including a hilarious one who looked like Russell Brand) started taking videos. It was perfect.
Then it was back to the hotel and off to bed to get a tiny bit of sleep before our 4 am wake up call.
What. A. Trip. I'm home now, and I still cannot believe that it's over. Luckily, I took lots of pictures, and I have lots of memories to hold me over until I go back again!
