Woodland Wanderings in Wytham
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have miles to go and promises to keep before I sleep”. This is an often quoted quotation by the famous English poet Robert Frost. The first line of this quotation is why I heartily recommend wandering about in woodlands and getting lost (temporarily) in their dark depths. However it was neither poetry nor a desire to get lost in dark depths of woodlands that brought me to Wytham Woods a few years ago. As always it was the practical and the prosaic that drew a child of the tropics and a hot house orchid like me to Wytham Woods and the synonymous village during one of UK’s fiercest winters. I was a first year PhD student at Cambridge University and needed to collect data for my First Year Report (FYR). The FYR milestone is supposed to be one of the most traumatizing milestones in the life of a PhD candidate and I could write a book about that (but let us not go there right now). So there I was in winter of 2012-13, kitted out in all pink like an Eskimo and began my on wards march to Wytham Woods. My outfit probably gives the onlooker an idea that I don’t like winters and cold and snow. That is right. Till that point I used absolutely loathe venturing out in freezing temperatures.Jojo
