They've got some pretty cool money in England. These are three different designs on one pound coins (including a dragon!) and a 50 pence coin celebrating the dictionary.

On Tuesday night, we went to St. John's College for the WEIS conference dinner. These are pictures of the College.

Some people called this the "Harry Potter" dinner. The food did not quite appear magically, although the swarm of serving staff that suddenly swooped in made it appear that way.

Inside joke for cryptographers. This is the soap dispenser in one of the the washrooms at St. John's College.

Wednesday night was a reception at Microsoft Research (the red building in the background). On the way back (it's still light out because it doesn't get dark until 10pm in the summers there) we passed these dancing fountains.

Saturday was a punting trip along the Cam! Punts are flat-bottomed boats that are propelled by means of someone standing on the back, and pushing with a pole. Here various PET people are using the rollers to mini-portage a punt.

We saw lots of lings of various flavours in the Cam along the way. Ducklings here.

We had four punts; sometimes we went separately, and sometimes we joined up.

David, Andrei, and Len met up with us partway down the banks of the Cam to deliver us strawberries and cream (a traditional punting treat).

All together now. I kept the hat on, and slathered on sunscreen every hour or so, so even in the 30C sun, I managed to avoid any major burnage (which is something for me!).

Swimming in the Cam. Doesn't seem all that wise to me, but lots of people seemed to be doing it.

There were lots of dragonflies. I kept having to cover my mouth.

Punting together (which, as it turns out, is less efficient than punting alone).

I have no idea why this tree stump would have barbed wire around it. Someone suggested it may have been poisoned.

Punting back to Cambridge. This direction is downstream, so it went much faster.

We crossed the rollers, and continued downstream to return the punts to St. John's College. This is King's College, which we passed on the way.

Len demonstrates the sport of bridge-jumping. The idea is that, when the punt approaches a bridge, someone climbs out, scrambles up and over the bridge, and jumps down into the punt as it comes out the other side. Here, Len is removing his pants trousers, in case he falls in the water (again).

Len waits at the bottom while we manoeuvre the punt closer to where he is.
