A new one

I often get asked for directions when I’m out walking with the kids, so I’ve gotten used to being approached by strange people with cameras.  This one had me stumped, though:

Young Asian woman: “Can you direct me to Oxford University?”

We were standing on a street in central Oxford, with the University Parks on one side, one of the colleges’ cricket fields on another, a science building on another . . .

I confirmed that it really was the university she was looking for, rather than some particular aspect of the university, and then wasn’t sure whether I was helping when I told her it was all around her.  She had her camera ready to go, so I wish I’d been able to point out a landmark building or something in the area.
