Found a new favorite place to study, or just pass the afternoon.
There is an open-air mall just a quick bus ride, bike, or walk away from campus with great shopping and restaurants. One of the latest editions is a little tea shop, the first two-thirds of which is full of every flavor tea and tea-related accessory imaginable, and the back third of it is a quiet little sanctuary.
Here is the row of low tables, the far right in the corner is the one I chose to study at.
This is the lovely fountain that, along with quiet classic Oriental music, perfectly accompanied my reading.
I sipped a yummy milk tea with bobas, and read The Frogs by Aristophanes (a comedy for a change in my Greek and Roman Tragedy class). I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially anyone with prior knowledge of ancient Greek literature. It is very funny, it is especially interesting to see just how much of the humor we still appreciate today.
What a fantastic afternoon :)
