In this post, CAPA Alumna Alexandra Zurbrick flashes back to London during a rainy day at her home campus in Oswego, NY. She reminisces about the magic of unpredictable weather, the simultaneous noise and quiet of the city of London, and uses her senses to show that a study abroad experience is one that will never truly leave you.
I’m sitting outside waiting for a bus back to my house in Oswego, New York. I can only hear the
buzzing of the outdoor lights that are already shining at 4:30pm. I’m bundled up in my fuzzy
scarf, but I know my nose is turning a dull red. Students quietly p
ass lugging their backpacks
with them. Campus is quiet, I am quiet. The cloudy sky makes me smirk.
At the touch of a raindrop,
I know where I would rather be.
