Day started with a phone call. Someone was sick. And there goes the teacher/mum/ambulance(?) see what had happened. After some time walking amidst this wonderful landscape
She finally arrived to see her patient close to his final breath…
It was a very diversified morning some in bed, some in Christ Church the most famous college in Oxford
Where’s Harry Potter?
Then Shopping again (buaaa)
Some sightseeing sharks (?!)
And others juggling between home, office, bus, laptop… ufff

A NIGHT OUT!!
Well tonight we decided to go into town so after being signed out, we took the bus and set off
First stop was at the Oxford Castle quarter. There was time to observe and take pics (laughing included)
Cristina was even taught on how to pose: bended leg and butt up!! Here’s the outcome:
Surprisingly we did’t know we were so close to the beach. As the weather was so good we decided to have a shot
Dinner time was long past and the cous cous completely digested so it was time for a battery charge… Should we choose a Portuguese?
A famous one?
Or simply go to the promised land AKA Burger King?
They should give an OSCAR to the guy who invented this food!!
OK. Stomach full, time to shake:
Underaged??!! Mick Jagger is overaged then… watch this:
Tonight we had a fantastic activity. Quite adventurous indeed! Let’s have a look at what we were asked to do:
Embassy Murder Mystery: who killed Fred?
Dear guest you are invited to Embassy Mansion to help us solve a devastating murder. At around seven o’clock this evening Fred was murdered at a charity dinner hosted at the Embassy Mansion. All of the guests present are now suspects. Obtain clues from all the suspects and piece together the puzzle to find out who killed Fred and why. Can you work it out?
LIST OF SUSPECTS
He’s Fred identical twin brother. He has a serious Barbie doll addiction and has spent a lot of his money buying them from Sohail, who he owes a lot of money. Both he and Fred are to inherit their father’s money but does Zoheb want it all for himself to pay Sohail back?
She’s Fred’s pregnant fiancée but is the baby his? She has recently found out about Fred’s affair with Felix.
He was in the army with Fred and is trained in weaponry. He and Fred had an affair. Felix had told Fred he was still in love with him but Fred does not love him back.
He owns a doll store and his best customer is Zoheb but he owns him a lot of money. He has a bad temper and takes anger management therapy with Kyle. Zoheb and Fred also call him Hairy Sohail which sometimes gets him very angry.
He is Sohail’s anger management therapist and Fred’s best friend. There are also rumours that he is the real father of Laura’s baby.
She is Zoheb and Fred’s stepmother. She doesn’t like them very much and when her husband dies she will not inherit his money unless both twins are dead.
THE INVESTIGATION TEAM
THE INTERVIEWS TO THE SUSPECTS
HOW EVERYTHING WAS SORTED OUT
WE had so much fun! It was a great idea having changed the plans for tonight. This was definitely much better than sports!
And don’t forget: Stay tuned
There’s more to come
We were supposed to have left at 8h45 but guess what, the italians were not there…
But then they came and off we went to
It was just great to see such a big park with so many animals!
Of all sorts 🙂
Check this James Bond look (right):
And of course some peculiar species
Multiple choice question:
a) Cristina and a lion and a tiger
b) A giraffe with Joana and Maria
c) Cristina and 2 students (!!!!!)
Answers to this quiz will be displayed next episode 🙂
And don’t forget to STAY TUNED!!
That’s right, this week’s classes are in the afternoon and some chinese joined the group. These are the activities for this week, and YAY we’re going to London!!
Today we had the Olympics… here they are in action:
As for me the usual working place
We got to town really early in the morning and we could actually SEE the streets as everybody else was still sleeping and most shops closed.
A walking tour to some of the nicest places in Oxford that don’t come on the ‘menu‘
The Bridge of Sighs
Harry Potter shop
And the famous TURF TAVERN
Then, I had them set loose and do what they loooove doing:
As for me, the usual
in my favourite bookshop
A long but rewarding day!
