It poured with rain in Oxford the other day. On the 275 Red Rose bus from High Wycombe one could hardly see out of the windows – rather what is must be like to be on Harry Potter’s night bus.
However once in the city it was gratifying see that the place was crowded with tourists undaunted they paraded with umbrellas and selfie sticks, some baffled by the parking regulations.
The group was outside the Bodleian, which is one of the oldest libraries in Europe.
Colourful umbrellas, the perfect counter point to a grey day.
|Oxford - hope springs eternal, tourist dampen but unbowed.|
