November 31, 1996

Oxford was where the train we were riding on unexpectedly separated. The front half went onto Stratford-upon-Avon (where we wanted to go) and the back half (that we were on) stayed in Oxford.

No problem. We didn't explode like some other American tourists in the same situation.We hopped on an Oxford Explorer bus and made the best of our unexpected stop until the next train bound for Stratford pulled in.
