Big Spiders, Norwich Science Fest and Kingston Arms, Cambridge - 5th September 2006

A miscellaneous roundup of photos from the end of August and beginning of September: first up, the secret genetics lab upstairs at Qualcomm Cambridge produces another in its series of "extreme insects", this time in the shape of a rather large spider; there are a few photos of Nosher's favourite food shop - Convivium Deli in Diss; Isobel, with Nosher along for kicks, goes on a shopping spree in Norwich, after which there's time for a walk up to the Cathedral Close, where part of the Norwich Science Festival is going on; on Sunday there's a barbeque around Pip and Apple's down the road from Nosher; finally, on Monday evening after a trip down Mill Road in Cambridge to eat out at the Kymmoy Noodle Bar, we head over to the Kingston Arms on Kingston Street for a spirit round, to find some live folk/bluegrass/blue going on in the corner...
