At Oxford

I arrived at Oxford last Monday, and haven't been posting much because I wanted to take some photos and let those speak for themselves first. Simply put, Oxford is a beautiful place. It's old but warm, and the people working at the university are wonderful.

But I don't want to write too much in this post. So without further ado, here's where I live...

That's my apartment on the top floor. It's got two rooms -- a study and a bedroom -- so I'm quite happy with the setup.

When I exit my staircase, here's the path I take.

Trinity College itself is beautiful, though the grass is a bit dead this time of year. Here's the front yard.

And for good measure, here's Rhodes House (across the street from Trinity College).

The main entrance to Trinity College is actually on the side of the College... The entrance is almost in the centre of town, and surrounded by many gorgeous and terribly old buildings, like the Sheldonian Theatre, below.

And here's some more random shots of the street I'm on...



So there you have it! A very different place from New York or Toronto, but I think I could get used to it.

Lucky to have met you today, and twice! Surprised to see someone with 3 blogs and interested in so many subjects!
Some really nice photos here, did u manage to take them before it rained? So your parents will look at them and have a good sense of the place you are living at... maybe I should really get my parents to use the internet next time :P!
Take your time to explore the area, I think you will be a great 'tour guide' :D

It started raining as I was taking them. The rain stopped before 5 pm, though, and I had a chance to go jogging in the University Parks. Nice place!
