the atmosphere and the campus had been entirely too long.
The buildings are just so gorgeous and ornate, but the town itself is rather quaint and there is a bit of shopping to take in on your trip. I had forgotten how similar Duke's campus is to Princeton and at first, walking around, it was as if I was in Durham. But there are distinct differences and I loved pretty much everything I saw. The biggest differential is the history that belongs to Princeton. Being a history junkie, this is the most pleasing part. It is one of nine members of the Colonial Colleges. And for four months, Princeton was our nations capital. I mean...as far as I know, it's not designated a World Heritage Site like UVA is....but;) Wahoowa.
Here are a few shots I was able to snap in our short hour long stop. If you have the chance, stop by the campus and check out one of the local joints for a quick bite!
This building is probably one of my favorites on the campus. And when I finally felt like I wasn't at Duke anymore. I love the stained glass and the colors of the brick. If I am correct, this is Alexander Hall.
But when I came upon this building, my love was solidified. Nassau Hall When I conjure up images of a perfect village, this would be what the town hall looked like. Stores on both sides and this at the end of the town center. I am not even joking. I love buildings encompassed by ivy almost as much as I love bourbon. But only almost.
I loved this view of the building through the structure out in front.
