My 5-week home-away-from-home.

Stairway XXVIII, Room 1, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

My new home!  Its really not a bad room for a dorm.  Since our buildings were converted from apartments many years ago, everyone’s room is different.  Mine has a large closet whereas some don’t even have a closet at all.  My bathroom is larger than most as well.  All our rooms also have different furniture as well.  A couple super lucky people have small refridgerators, I have a piano!  I wish I new how to play.

Corridor to Stairway XXVIII, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

This is the outdoor corridor leading to my stairway.  Lots of people bike around here.

My room from the outside, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

This is my room, the purple wall with the slightly open windows.  This is the bad part about my rooom.  I am on the ground floor.  Although I don’t have to climb any stairs, I can only open my windows about four inches, for security.  They are blocked with little blocks of wood screwed into the frame.  And this alley is a busy walkway.

Dinning hall, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

This is where I eat breakfast and dinner most of the time.  Except for the pictures that I lost, I have forgotten to take breakfast pictures every single day.  I promise I will take one next time.
