New Haven - First Look

In the morning I get up at 7:30 local time. Have to get a parking permit from the Housing Office. The parking is in 15 minute walking distance, not very close but doable. Hope it does not rain too much.

I walk through some of the streets of New Haven, have breakfast (am quite hungry now, since for my internal clock it is already afternoon, and no breakfast or lunch yet). Similar to Cambridge University, this is a "City as Campus". Monumental buildings, streets with shading trees, a very pleasant atmosphere. But not far away outside of the campus, there are poorer neighborhoods, some run-down houses, closed factories. Almost feel like back home in Yorkshire with its closed mills!

Took a few pictures, will probably upload them tonight.
