11:45 a.m.// Botanic Garden
Leaving the Christ Church, I went for a stroll around the neighborhood.
Bathing in the warming sunshine, soon I reached the Botanic Garden of Oxford University.
Visiting a Botanic Garden during winter was a bad idea?
No, as the staff there said there was a Christmas tree. And I did have high hope for it.
After all, it costed me 5 pounds.
Right after the entrance, there was a running river by the green houses.
To the right of the river, there were a few green houses keeping “exotic” plants.
I envisioned a man-eating plant like this:
Well instead I was greeted by plants commonly found in Hong kong.
Going pass the green houses, you can see the real garden behind. However it was winter, so…
Almost all the trees went bald. Fortunately the grass was still refreshingly green.
By the way where was the promised Christmas Tree?
1:00 p.m. // Mission Burrito
Well I got bored eventually and went for tacos. Really good tacos here.
And the hot sauce really made up for the broken promise of the Christmas miracle:
I want a tree, just a Christmas tree…
Or actually giving me 5 pounds back would be better.
And you can speak Spanish to the staff there. (Not that I know any Spanish.)
Next time I will be
possibly concluding my visit to Oxford. Not much to write about this time. Hope you had a good laugh.
