ROSE現地レポート part2 「川下りをしました!」

2011-08-15

  Punts are a long, flat boats that are propelled by using a long pole to push against the bottom of a river. Punting is popular in Cambridge and Oxford because the rivers that flow through both cities are shallow and slow-moving. The weather in Oxford was too cold last week, but we finally had some sunny weather in Cambridge, and so today's lesson in English culture was learning how to punt.!
