Osso “Buko”

It turned out OK. It was better after I added some of the sauce that I’d cooked it in.

From The 4 Hour Chef, more or less.

Museum of the History of Science

Here are a few highlights from the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford. This museum is mostly filled with scientific equipment from the past for a variety of disciplines. Some of it’s pretty interesting including the first large reflecting telescope and Einstein’s blackboard. The museum has it’s challenges through. The displays are covered in do not touch signs, which makes photography a challenge, it’s a bit cramped and didn’t seem to be in the best repair. The front facade is being refurbished though. The scaffolding did provide a unique view of some of the statues out front. The location for this museum is prime. Right next to the Old Bodleian Library on Broad Street.

Security

I think I’m secure here. To get to my room from the street you first have to pass through a gate with a combination lock, then pass a guard shack (the lodge) with a guard inside, then use an electronic key fob to get into my building, then use a key to get into my flat, then use the key again to get into my room. I have no idea how many security cameras I passed in that process.

I don’t know if it’s safe (it seems to be quite safe), but it’s certainly secured.

What is this?

I’ve seen these in front of several buildings, but I have no idea what they are or what they’re used for. Can anyone help?

Christ Church Meadows Walk

Yesterday I took a walk around Christ Church Meadows. The weather was perfect and the scenery is what you imagine from old stories and paintings. I didn’t know places like this really exist.
