Nostalgic Visit to Nottingham


As previously hinted in the primer, the visit to Nottingham brought back many memories to my parents. Nottingham was the place they studied at and the place they met. My father studied at the People's College which is opposite the Robin Hood statue in the picture, almost at the town centre. My mother studied at what was then called Westbridgeford College - right accross town. Now the college is called the South Nottingham College.

I couldn't help feeling a bit eerie visiting Nottingham where my parents previously met - I owe Nottingham my very existence!

ps
They say life is a cycle: Speaking of nostalgia, I also went to college in England. Here to be exact. I studied medicine at the very hospital I was born in, and graduated from the same University as my father; both of us obtained our doctorate from the University of Wales. Sarah (my first-born) was also born in Cardiff as was I. Probably many years in the future MS & I would be visiting our nostalgic places with an adult Sarah. Eerie.
