February - University of Oxford welfare weekend, Saturday pm - invited into Balliol College by the editors of their undergraduate Magazine 'Scrawl' to do a workshop with students - a full rewarding session further enlivened by the presence of Chlamydia researchers, so students dashing through the other end of the room to the toilets to do samples! It all became joyously surreal.
A really good group - enjoyed it. Coming out of the JCR, looked up amazed, to see the Hall on a hill so beautiful. Crocuses as well! I never knew in all these years that this magic was there behind St Giles!
