    “very good!”

    (Beforehand: My English is very poor. So please excuse my mistakes!)
    It was the first visit in England for me (being already 53 years old). I wanted to see the Cathedral of Canterbury because of its connection to St. Anselm (archbishop there in the 11th century), in whom I am very interested theologically (I am a catholic priest and teacher). Unfortunately the visit of the whole Cathedral was not possible, because the graduates of the university exactly in this week had their service there. But in the chapel of St. Anselm I met a very kindful guard, who told and showed me very interesting details of the building and the history of the cathedral, including many informations of St.Anselm.
    For my purpose the location in the Kent university was ideal. The room was very nice; the breakfast was great; the people were friendly and helpful; the walk downtown was easy.
    I thank you very much for your kindness.
    (p.s.: The prices for beer are rather high in England.)
