Reality checkpoint

I had a chance to go to Cambridge this week, so I checked in at the Reality Checkpoint (which is a thing) while I was there. Visiting my old stamping ground brought back so many nostalgic memories, and also prompted so much astonishment and surprise. Cambridge was rich and posh when I lived there, but the wealth and the poshness has multiplied by many orders of magnitude since then. You can feel the money as the train rolls into the city, you can sense it as you walk the streets. Ridiculous privilege aside, I still love the place. Nostalgia does that.


EVERYBODY IN THE PLACE
