Photographer's Note

Inspired by John :). I hope you will like it.

Yesterday John showed the view of the Magdalen Tower. The tower is a part of Magdalen College, one of the most impressive in Oxford. It is situated near the river. Behind the tower, there is a Magdalen (of course :)) Bridge. Near this bridge, one can hire a small boat, punt, for a trip. I suppose that the students can earn some money by it. But I didn't go by boat.
Magdalen College was founded in 1458 by William of Waynflete. Today, it is one of the wealthiest colleges, and one of the strongest academically. rnrnThe large, square Magdalen Tower is an Oxford landmark, and it is a tradition, dating to the days of Henry VII, that the college choir sings from the top of it at 6 a.m. on May Morning. The college stands next to the River Cherwell and the Oxford botanic garden, and within its grounds has a deer park and Addison's Walk.

Better see in a large format here:

It seems that the coronavirus affected also TE. Is the end approaching?

As to my yesterday photo of bats. The cafe was in a very popular tourist place, in Tanah Lot, so I think that they were just tourist attraction, like pets. They had also a few luwaks. They look well cared for. Only later at home, I wanted to read something about bats in Indonesia and I saw terrible views of bats in the market. But in Bali, I didn't see any (luckily!). Can you imagine Western tourists wanting to eat bats? Nooo, and especially in corona times.
