Oxford in the Rain

Jen: “From sunny skies we went on to monsoons in Oxford—the frustrating, damp part of our journey. Oxford was nice, but I would have skipped it altogether for more time in Stratford. And just when we thought our tour guide had run dry, he went on to report his observations on the English language and his nostalgic need to hold onto a refined and outdated version of the living and ever-evolving language that we still speak. His reciting of Shakespeare’s verse was rather enjoyable and pleasing to hear.”
