It is a strange time to be in Cambridge. Most of the university or college buildings are undergoing building or restoration work, so a lot of the town is currently covered in scaffolding or otherwise hidden. (For a nice view of the city from the top of the library tower go here. And for a view of the market square, go here. The Corpus college webcam is here, so you can watch the comings and goings of the corpuscles at your leisure.) It's as if the city is getting ready for the imminent influx of new and returning students, who will arrive to see the place clean and tidy, while we have had to spend the summer weaving through the debris.

Another bad sign -- the new university diaries have appeared in the CUP shop!
