I am leaving tmrw for China, I have a lot to say but don't know how to start.
I still remembered the first day i came here and met new ppl and felt scared and later on i got to know my group well. I read at weekdays and traveled on weekends. I went to bath and cardiff I love wales and welsh ppl better than English. I am not religious but i enjoyed the evensong at churches. I have visited a lot of colleges at oxford and castles. I walked around the big ben and saw london bridge. I learned I laughed and I came and left.
the best of the best summer ever!
Ciao and love.
Lastly, don't miss the city sightseeing bus, its only 8 dollars for student and valid for 2 days, we also used it as a normal bus to go anywhere we wanted. The skyline part was amazing. They took us uphill so that we could saw the whole city. There were also a lot of pretty villas.
I am just in love with this city!
At that time, study abroad wasn't as popular as right now, she had no idea what was waiting for her in the future. As all the teenagers at this age, She was full of passion and brave enough to chase her dream. All my early impression of Britain came from her story. I fell in love with the sky, the massive buildings and even the red telephone box in her story.
I started to dream to come here one day but in the end I went to USA instead. It's also one of the reasons why I am in this program.
I know all my friends in USA were amazed when they heard that I am from China and went here alone. But still I am two years older than Jennifer when she went to Britain. I can totally imagine how she felt and went through all the fun&trouble.
The novel was adapted for the screen later on and here's a short video in Youtube. I am totally gonna review the novel and I bet it's completely different feeling after 7 years.
When talking about Seattle music, you don't wanna miss Nirvana but as an international student who seldom listens to Rock music, I had no idea who Nirvana was at first. lol
British musical invasion happened in 1960s and everyone was either watching their music show at home or went to the live. They aren't just music, they are legend!
In order to sort of know how to start this search project, I have emailed the guest professor who gave me their first lecture, here was her suggestion:
"One angle you might want to explore is the Beatles "industry" that is now very well established. Liverpool, in particular, relies on attracting tourists - there's a bus tour called the Magical Mystery Tour, a Beatles museum, and an entire block of Mathew Street, with sculptures, stores, and the re-built Cavern Club. The bus tour goes by the addresses of the Beatles childhood homes and places like the Strawberry Fields orphanage and the barber shop featured in the song Penny Lane!"
