The flight was long, it lasted almost 14 hours. To save money, we decided to chose a flight with stopovers. We arrived in Cambridge 14 hours later. We took the bus from the airport to our youth hostel. Because of the long flight, we were very hungry so we went in a bakery to ate something. It was delicious! Finally, we slept in YHA Cambridge, a youth hostel. Expenses of the day: flights ($1200 for three people) bus ($60 for three day pass) meals ($60) youth hostel ($41)

In that museum we met people with different accents, one of them was speaking Hackey, a traditionnal dialect from Cambridge. For dinner, we had the chance to eat Cambridge's traditionnal meal: fish and chips. Élisabeth didn't like the meal but Laurie and Edouard really liked it! We returned in our youth hostel for the night. Expenses of the day: bus ($60 for three day pass) meals ($60) youth hostel ($41)

April 7th (day 6): For our last day, Élisabeth really wanted to visit the campus of Cambridge University. Before that, we ate a pancake from a creperie. We took the bus to go to the campus. We start by visiting the Library because some scenes of Harry Potter were filmed there. On our way to another part of the campus, we saw some students partying and we noticed something strange. A boy put a penny into his friend's glass. We found that really strange but we learned later that it was a popular drinking game invented at Oxford University. The basic goal of the game is to slip a penny into someone's drink without their noticing. If you succeed, the person has to down their drink in one. We were glad to learn that weird habbit and we might bring it to our futur party. We spend the rest of the day on the campus. We had lunch and dinner there too. We conclude the day by walking into Cambridge streets and enjoying our last night in the city. Expenses of the day: bus($60 for three day pass) youth hostel ($41) meals ($60)
