Spotlight on Cambridge, England

 

            Cambridge, England, like Oxford, is a university town with an incredibly exalted tradition.  Numerous colleges (31 in all) make up this university. Of note are the King’s College Chapel, with its awe-inspiring fan-vaulted ceilings and its altarpiece, The Adoration of the Magi, painted by Rubens.  As in Oxford, there is a “bridge of sighs”, this time over the Cam river and it is interesting for visitors to either watch or participate in an age-old tradition at Cambridge — “punting on the Cam”, which involves poling a flat-bottomed boat down the river.
