BIRTH PLACE OF HIS MAJESTY REACHED

Today I reached Cambridge, the birthplace of His Majesty. I visited the square named after the King and Mt.Auburn hospital. I actually was so, so lucky to meet a lovely lady who gave me the once in a life time chance to visit the very room where the King was born. It is in the old part of the hospital on the second floor, with big windows facing on to the street. It felt amazing to stand there and is the best part of the ride. The record paled in to insignificance and I am not too worried ....Read More
