Tradition!

Sitting at Henley in the Stewards enclosure, soaking in the sun, covertly blogging on the blackberry. Not allowed to use mobile phones in the enclosure, you see. There are skirt police who check that your hem is below the knee. A few women had to change, one girl was caught and tore out the hemming giving her the needed inch in length.

Hung out with Berkeley alumni and met a fluent mandarin speaker and an archeologist in the making studying at oxford.

Great weather, pimms, strawberries, clotted cream. Rowers and ex rowers in multicolour college and club blazers with their metal members badges hanging from their buttonholes. Security in bowler hats. Tradition all around.
