Summer VIII's

Today was Summer Eights, the biggest rowing race after Oxford v. Cambridge. It's a bump race which means it's not about coming in first place but bumping the boat in front of you - yes literally bumping them. Basically the banks of the Isis are full of people and all of the boat houses are selling hamburgers and Pimms, which by the way is amazing. Pictures are below.

Pimm's is a drink. I don't really know how to describe it. Here's the website: http://www2.anyoneforpimms.com/
Once you get to the main page click on "recipes" then "Pimms Classic" - that's how you drink it.
