The City of Dreaming Spires

If there's one thing I've learned since coming to Britain, it's that you have to take advantage of the good weather while it lasts! The last three days have brought in some warmer temperatures and gorgeous sun (for the most part), so this afternoon a few friends and I walked out to Carfax Tower, at the far end of Oxford's High Street, to enjoy some very panoramic sights of the city. After climbing up a succession of tightly spiralling, claustrophobia-inducing staircases, we emerged to see this:

Spectacular. As many pictures as we took, none of them come close to capturing that view. There's a reason Oxford is called "the city of dreaming spires."
