I had planned to go to listen to a talk about Tippu Tip by Stuart Laing at SOAS London. It turned out to be a full day for me of, amongst other things, an East African experience. Passing through the British Museum on my way to a talk at SOAS; Zanzibari artefacts seemed to call out ‘ look at me’.
A great idea in London is what’s called ‘Boris’s Bikes’, the bikes can be hired by the hour from numerous locations and left at any other. So it was a nice reminder to see how many Cambridge has always had, here parked outside one of the colleges.
