Yale: Part I

So at some point of time, I decided to run away from New York and spend a week in Yale. So far it feels pretty surreal. The whole experience is very Harry-goes-to-Hogwarts-like.

I haven't gone for any classes yet, but I'm super super in love with the architecture~

(And just for clarification, I'm just dropping in for a week of classes)

The Peabody Museum of Natural History

Divinity school (a divinity school!?)

The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Sterling Memorial Library's hallway.

One of the reading rooms inside the library. It's so beautiful omg T_T

Detail from Berkeley College's dining hall.

Our common room.

Made me feel like I was on a movie set as we chatted into the night. I... I think I've used the word love too many times in this post already... but yeah, I love. ;_;

Also visited the Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art, took some pictures with my Lumix, but I forgot to bring the USB cable so I'm waiting for my back up to arrive next week in New York. I think those will be in a later post if I manage to get around to them. :D

And a last pic backtracking a few days prior taken in New York City.

It was the day before I left for Yale. A collaboration with Arissa for her fashion blog Monoxious. It's kinda crazy that we fly around so much these days, our only opportunities to hang out are while overseas.

On a totally unrelated note, does anyone have a good salon/hairdresser to recommend in NYC? My hair is kinda growing out and I really need to touch up the roots. I've always done the colours in Tokyo so I'm not sure if it's easy to achieve the same tones here since Japan has so many brands that seem to be used domestically only. I'm a bit skeptical about random walk-ins, so would really appreciate if someone can introduce a good place (that's hopefully not going to cost toooooo much). Thank you. =D
