Oxford











I was so happy my Mom decided to come on my Dad's business trip to oxford.  After visiting Ehsan and I in London for dinner, I travelled back to oxford with my parents and spent a couple of days exploring the city with them.  We found a shop where the real life Alice,  Lewis carol was inspired byword frequently visit to buy sweets.  Some of the story from Alice in Wonderland  actually took place in the shop". Lewis Carroll also wrote the book in the university across the street (the pictures in the beginning with beautiful gardens). There is a very magical natural history museum with gorgeous iron work and mysterious giant glass and wood curiosity cases with a. dodo bird and an ostrich!  All the gargoyles, animals and people that decorate the exteriors and interiors of oxford universities and churches are very comical and beautiful.  I saw so many laughing creatures, willowy maidens, and mini animals scurrying along pillars, window, and doors.  If you love period movies, Harry potter, or Alice in wonderland, you should visit Oxford.
