On Thursday evening, after work, Mark and I loaded all of his stuff into the boot of the car and headed for the M6 and Penrith. After almost four weeks at home with glandular fever, he was finally returning to University.
On Friday morning, he gave me the full guided tour of campus and I've picked out a few of the more interesting bits to show you.
Of course, the campus has all of the usual things; library, teaching rooms, sports complex, accommodation, eating places etc etc etc, but I thought I'd select just three slightly more unusual features and show you one each day for the next three days.
Day 1: The high ropes course.
Imagine climbing the centre pole, balancing on the circular platform, launching yourself into the air and touching the yellow ball; even better, grabbing it and hanging on?
How is your pulse rate?
It makes a welcome break from writing essays!!
And yes, he did manage to grab the ball. I've seen the photos on Facebook :)
Happy birthday, Mark :)
