Good evening all,
Today and yesterday have been "lazy days". We haven't done much, but at least once a day we go out and walk around. Yesterday Steven took me for a tour around our neighborhood. In our neighborhood there are about five houses that are filled with KBC students or faculty. Its nice to be living so close to people you know! We also went down a private lane just so we could see the pretty, bigger houses. We saw the "PRIVATE" sign, but we just went ahead and wandered in anyway. Our cover if we got stopped by the police or anything was to say we couldn't read english. Here is where we got our inspiration: A little British humor for you: (click on the link below)
Yesterday, when we weren't out walking, I tried to get caught up on lectures. There is still one week, the last week before Christmas break, that I haven't listened to. Also, I was trying to finish one of the assigned books, The Holy Wild. I finished it today, and I would recommend it! :)
Our nights are filled with playing Shed, which we have to set a limit to because we'd play all night if we didn't have a limit. And we usually finish the night with a movie. Last night was an older movie with Robin Williams and Robert De Niro called "Awakenings". It was a good/sad movie. We picked it because we thought it was supposed to be a "feel good" movie, but it didn't make us feel so good... :(
Today we went on a walk through down town Oxford. We went to the Ashmolean Museum, pictured below.
The Ashmolean Museum was the first museum in Britain. Also, there is so much to see and entrance is free! So we only went to about two floors and we'll hit the rest of it on a later date.
What I love about Oxford is it just seems to be exploding with character. Maybe its because everything is so old and there is so much history behind it, but I just really enjoy walking through the town and seeing everything and all the architecture.
Below are a few other pictures I took of around the city:
This is a square in Gloucester Green. There was a Cafe Nero where we stopped in. Also, there was a Ben and Jerrys and an Odeon cinema. There were other stores too, but those were the ones remember.
Here is my Cafe Mocha (which was AMMMMMAAAZING) and my almond biscotti from Cafe Nero. After we left the cafe, we ran to catch the bus. We made it on even though the bus driver was a little irritated, but oh well. We are now home and we're putting the baby down to sleep. Soon it will be time to eat dinner and to chill out for the rest of the night!
Enjoy your day everyone!
