Foreign Correspondents: Oxford, England through Photographs


Editor’s Note: This is an installment of the weekly column, Foreign Correspondents, that will chronicle Middlebury students’ experiences studying abroad. Here, Aidan Acosta ‘20.5 shows snapshots of his life in Oxford.

Spires: These particular spires belong to All Souls College. The crown-shaped structure in the bottom left of the frame sits above the gate to the college’s quadrangle.
Saint Ives: A coastal town in the south-western county of Cornwall. The region is home to England’s surfing crowd, which becomes immediately clear by the abundance of Volkswagen camper vans and people wearing Volcom and Billabong. The ocean is a beautiful shade of blue and the homes are tightly packed along thin roads, clearly built without anticipating the advent of cars. Cornwall is a four hour drive from Oxford, but it is one of the most beautiful regions I visited in the country. 10/10 would recommend.
