I'm actually surprised how quickly I'm getting over my jet-lag. I forced myself to stay awake until ten o'clock last night (after arriving yesterday morning). Arriving wasn't so bad either, though I did doze off on the train, I woke up before my stop.
So far, I've already taken a few walks around the city and have seen several of the other colleges. We went on a "Pub Walk" to two pubs tonight, I tried a half of some of the local beers. This afternoon I bought books at "The Last Book Store" where all the books are two pounds-- I'm afraid that shop will make me go over my luggage weight allowance very quickly. Then another student and I went to the Bodleian and didn't have time for a tour, but went to the Divinity School and the tea shop.
I feel morally obligated to drink all the tea I possibly can while in England.
Similarly, I feel obligated to take in some Shakespeare while I'm here. There are several productions going on at the moment, so I should make at least one.
I did also try marmite at breakfast this morning. A savory yeast paste on my toast? Odd. Takes some getting used to. I might like it on something else, or in something, it's very strong on its own.
Anyway, I'm swooning over all the old buildings, taking dozens of photographs which I'll upload later this week, and just generally getting the lay of the land so far.
