The City of Dreaming Spires

The City of Dreaming Spires

Waking up surrounded by Gothic architecture
Studying in the Radcliffe Camera­
Strutting in high heels across cobblestones
Shopping at the Covered Market
Bargaining with the Greek chip man for extra garlic mayonnaise
Jogging at the University Parks
Reveling in the places I imagined King Charles’ artillery
Shooing disrespectful pigeons away from the Martyrs Memorial
Buying books at Blackwell’s I can’t afford
Eating chicken curry and drinking Katy Cider at Far from the Madding Crowd’s pub quiz:

A semester abroad
