600 years of University of St Andrews

Sometimes I feel able to ‘blog as it happens’. And sometimes I have to think about it a bit. I’m going to post a bit about my visit to Uganda – but I’ve found that it needs more absorbing than usual.

Meanwhile on the way home, I took part in a 600th Anniversary Service for the University of St Andrews at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. It was a remarkable piece of organisation – 2500 people were there. Indeed pretty well everybody was there. At the rehearsal, I found myself talking to a lady who seemed vaguely familiar. Searching around in the recesses of my mind, I realised that I was talking to Anna Ford. I think she is wearing better than I am.

It was a good evening – some wonderful music in particular. And it was rounded off with some interesting conversation in the bar on the sleeper on the way home.
