about Wimpole Hall_
First built in 1643 and much altered by subsequent owners, Wimpole has developed into the largest country house in Cambridgeshire. Wimpole’s owners employed noted architects of their day to make alterations to the Hall: Lord Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford employed James Gibbs; the Earls of Hardwicke during their period of ownership from 1740- 1895 employed Henry Flitcroft, Sir John Soane and Henry Kendall. Evidence of the work of all of these architects can be seen today, but the most notable work is that of Soane. Examples include: the Bathhouse, Book Room and the striking Yellow Drawing Room.
Mrs. Elsie Bambridge, the last owner of Wimpole, who bequeathed her estate to the National Trust in 1976. Bought in 1938 Wimpole Hall was devoid of any furniture or paintings and Mrs Bambridge spent her life trying to return some of them. What you see today at Wimpole is a culmination of development of the earlier owners and the collection assembled by Captain George and Elsie Bambridge. (via. www.wimpole.org)

Today I listened to this album again by chance. It’s been released for nearly 6 years… I still remember when I first had this album, I was using MP3 at high school in China… Time has gone so fast but music is still very fresh to me. Good beat, good song writing, good lyrics… so glad that I met this album again!

‘我在全世界旅行，用中国护照肯定会不方便。但我总是告诉女儿，我们有两个选择，一个是换护照，使我们方便起来；还有一个就是每次碰壁以后，我们就把它当成一个机会，提醒我们应该更加努力，为这本护照获得尊重作一点贡献。’ — 蔡国强《芭莎艺术》创刊特辑
‘As I am traveling around the world, it is certain that using a chinese passport is inconvenient. But I always tell my daughter, we have two options, one is to change passport to make us more convenient; the other is every time after we struggled with adversity, we took it as an opportunity to remind us to work even harder, to make a little contribution to this passport for being respected.’ — Cai Guo-Qiang, Chinese Artist, from his interview in Harper’s Bazaar Art (initial issue)
