|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.|
|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.|
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.
