Hello Again, Oxford

I didn’t have to self-isolate thanks to the existence of travel corridors, but at the same time I didn’t really want to go anywhere crowded. So I took a walk in the University Parks instead, stopping at St. Catherine’s College along the way to check my mail.

Admittedly, it’s strange to see Oxford so quiet this time of the year. Strange, but also nice in a certain way, because it’s often difficult to appreciate how beautiful the place is when there are a million tourists around.

Anyway, here are some pictures from my walk yesterday (click/tap on a picture to see the full size image):

The Idea of the Brain

Location: Kinokuniya, KLCC

This book was mentioned on a podcast I was listening to recently. I originally planned to buy it once I’m back in Oxford (sometime in September inshaAllah), but failed to overcome my craving and ended up purchasing it last weekend.

Big School

Location: Kuala Kangsar

The Big School building is 111 years old this year. For some reason this reminds me of Bilbo Baggins, who slipped on the One Ring and vanished from sight during his “eleventy first”, or 111st, birthday party.
