Batting for Thailand

Hobbs, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

Overlooking Parker's Piece, this weather vane sits atop Hobb's Pavilion, so named to commemorate the career of Jack Hobbs, a Cambridge man often regarded as a 'greatest batsman ever' candidate. Part of the pavilion is still used for cricket games that take place throughout the summer but most of it is given over to the Mai Thai restaurant - an (imo) average eatery with better-than-average views. For awesome Thai, visit Sala Thong on Newnham Street - you will, however, have to do without your googlies...
