Days Two and Three



I'm really tired right now, so I'm just going to show and explain some pictures. ^_^

Went to the supermarket--what a sensory overload. Not only all the bottles and packages I can barely read, but also the voices that were coming from speakers everywhere. There was a male and a female voice saying different things at the same time--it all became a jumble.

Another view of campus, from right inside the main gate. Pretty, ne? This is pretty much all of the green on campus, save a couple of street trees. Most everything else is paving stones.

This is the view from outside the bookstore, which is on the third floor of the Campus Center-esque building. Take a close look at the power lines--the towers are actually painted two different colors! Why is that? Seems like a waste of paint to me.

Got my ID card today, so I could check out the library (you need to swipe your card to get in, kind of like the subway in NYC). It's very very very nice--a little smaller than the UAlbany library, but more open inside. Many places to sit and study, but again, not quite as many as Albany has. This section is for language study books.

It seems whereever I look I'm confronted with a wall of kanji. These books are from a computer section. I think some of them deal with programming languages and the like.

Okay, eyes going buggy, so I think I'm going to go sleep now. ^_^
