I don't but I know that Joanna (princess of darkness) is studying at the university there.

Sounds like the old place hasn't changed much in the years since I worked there!

Isn't that odd! This Durham seems to have a lot of resemblance to the Durham I live in, which is in North Carolina. Only the closest thing to an actual cathedral is the Duke Chapel, and the university is Duke too. We're nearly twinssmiley - hug
