17/11: Fun Run

As company we toke part at the Cambridge Fun Run, a sport event to rise money for children in needs.
Every team was composed by 4 runners, each one of whom had to run one mile and survive after that.
We had three teams called "Chilly Mountaineers", Blow 1, 2 and 3.

The story is curious: often on Friday we go at the pub to have a lunch together and since a long time ago, probably since the beginning, NemeriX employees used to order "Chilly mountain", which is a blow of potatoes, beans, meat, cheese and a lot of Chilly paper.
Once the pub renewed the menu and the Chilly Mountain was cut off.
NemeriX employees stopped to go there and they officially complained, until the Chilly Mountain was back in the menu at the price that NemeriX employees asked to be!

After the run we went at the pub and looking at the shirts the host was not believing that...
so they wanted to take a picture of us... and here it is.

12/11: Ickworth

We visited Ickworth park & gardens (the house is closed during winter time).
It is another National Trust place, less than 50 Km far away from where we live.
The gardens and wood were beautiful with autumn's color starting to appear.
There was even an area with deers, which was the most interesting attraction for Agnese and Rachele.
Autumn is spreading nicely around.

11/11: King's College

We visited for the first time King's College, founded by Henry VI in 1441.
It is a beautiful building and it is very often shown as symbol of Cambridge: probably it is Cambridge most famous attraction.

Inside the chapel (the biggest building) there were Choir rehearsal and Agnese and Rachele looked very interested in that kind of music.
A bit less about the University: Agnese said she is not going to study there, but since she is 3 and half she has some time to change her mind.
