My first impression of UK was from a flight;The sun setting, Pink city and the river Thames flowing through the bustling city
My eyes could capture the well spaced villas with its large glass windows and traditional chimney on roof tops. Beautiful, well spaced, clean city.
The notion stuck when I reached Cambridge. The sense of space is tremendous and the green spaces of city refreshing.
But the cold, Brr… I cannot bear it.
The villas are spacious, heated up and carpeted. the warmth envelops you and you forget the cold outside. The kitchens are equipped with latest gadgets ranging from toasters, blenders, mixers and automatic gas hobs.
The outside of villas are paved with pebbles and stones. This is to avoid slipping during snow fall.
The sheer variety of trees, shrubs and flowers can leave you mesmerized. The flowers are a delight to watch with rainbow colors present everywhere.
There is no resemblance to Indian plants anywhere.
The weather; what can I say about it? There are 4 seasons in a day. The daylight begins at 4:30 and ends at 9 during summer. So you can never predict the time looking at the sky. The day changes from being sunny to cloudy in minutes with occasional drizzles. Mind you I am talking about May here.
The city is breathtaking. And I will be covering it in my next post.
