And just as an aside - I've got an apartment in the centre of Cambridge which I've decided to sell. I realise if you're one of the visitors to this blog from Johannesburg you're unlikely to want a pied-à-terre here but I once sold a car via this blog so - who knows? :) It's a funky one-bedroom place 5 minutes from the station which, amazingly, means you're about 4 hours from the centre of Paris! I know - awesome, right? I've done it several times. Anyway, check it out here (or click on the pic). You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
