“I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walkin’ through the streets of Soho in the rain… Hooooowl! Werewolves of London!” – Warren Zevon

The past and next few weeks are littered with holidays. Spending them in Britain has been, and hopefully will continue to be, spectacular, if distinctly different. I celebrated my 19th birthday three weeks ago, on 18 October. To be in London for my birthday was a phenomenal gift in itself, however it was unlike any […]

“You must be somewhere in London; you must be lovin’ your life in the rain.”

October 14th, 2011 · No Comments · Angelique Neumann '15 - London, England, First Year Study Abroad Experience

–Here is a prolix and pleading attempt to offer substantial excuses for being so dilatory in updating this blog, as well as a lamenting farewell to my stipend: It’s to do with perfectionist profundity; I feel that everything I post needs to be some insightful social commentary or themed, perceptive anecdote not made dull by […]

I adore the rain, frizzy hair, cute ‘brellies (of which I am now a proud possessor), soggy green grass and all. The English, as a people […]

“Took my feet to Oxford Street…” and thereafter ran.

September 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Angelique Neumann '15 - London, England, First Year Study Abroad Experience

I should have worn more deodorant today. Not just because of the relatively hot weather (described as “cracking” by our enthralling sociology professor at City), or even because of the thousand or so people cramming themselves into Primark on Oxford Street, or in an act of camaraderie with the neighborhood football team Malina and Casey […]

“And did those feet in ancient time walk upon England’s mountain green?” – William Blake

August 31st, 2011 · No Comments · Angelique Neumann '15 - London, England, First Year Study Abroad Experience

Sometimes I think they did, these feet, I mean.  Perhaps in some past life they trod across this “green and pleasant land,” a land of Shakespeare, and Doctor Who, and Harry Potter, and Monty Python, and scholarly little tweed coats, and indomitable Queen Elizabeth, and the zany Egremont Crabapple Festival, and that infamous upper lip, […]
