Re-assembling the dis-assembled

After spending some time preparing this maximum carbon imprint week (sigh), I am have now come into the delight of actually experiencing – and enjoying – it. The first stage of this trip is in Oxford, the second one will be in Cologne and the last one in Toulouse. The sun was shining gloriously when I got off the shuttle in Oxford yesterday, a Sunday morning in which I expected empty, grey streets, but was instead greeted by brunchers, sunbeams and pink blooming trees.
