In the 1996-97 academic year, Nick Maffei, Computer Studies Instructor at City College of San Francisco, was selected to participate in a Fulbright Teacher Exchange.  Nick exchanged classes with IT Instructor, Peter Goulden of City College Manchester, England.  This is an account of that exchange.

GouldenHouse.jpg (88559 bytes) Peter and Catherine Goulden's house in Heaton Moor where I lived during my first month in England.   It is actually two attached houses with a brick wall and hedges - typical of British houses.  Photo on the right is their backyard.  Their two cats are hiding in the bushes somewhere.

Manchester City Center with a view of Piccadilly Gardens on a quiet Sunday morning. The red brick building is the University of Manchester Science & Technology.  The building on far right had all its windows blown out, the result of an IRA bomb in July 1996, one month before I arrived in Manchester.
