Cambridge is a beautiful city and a very romantic one as well. These pictures show what I mean, Barbara and I have been to all these places. I leave it to your own imagination to get a sense of how that felt.

These pictures were taken by my father in 1977.


In 2012 I did another tour of the sites of Cambridge, I made these pictures...

One of the fans of Barbara made this video of her visit to Cambridge

Barbara and I normally arranged to meet each other in the Botanical gardens in the weekends (Barbara told her family that she was going there to draw some flowers). In 2012 I did the walk again from my parents house to the Botanical gardens (about 15 minutes). This walk brought back many memories. These are the pictures I took from the walk, things hadden't changed.


Parkers piece, the enormous playing area near the CCAT where Barbara and I used to go to lay down in the grass. These pictures were taken in 2012, things haven't changed and still lovers meet each other here to lay down and be happy together.


Below pictures of places which are mentioned in the stories.

Tennison road, the house were most of our Chinese friends lived.

Nice pictures! I must say I like the 1977 ones better! :D

Many Chinese know about Cambridge for its world renown university, and maybe also because one of the most famous Chinese poets and his well known poem about Cambridge:

But of course, we Barbara fans know and visit Cambridge for another distinct reason! :lol:
