Distractions, reflections

David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders

Travelling as do the natives, the morning commute is a walk from the BART station in downtown Berkeley, eastward into the campus. Downtown Berkeley isn’t large, and a little bit sleepy in the mornings.

The west entrance to the university campus is marked by the preservation of dense stands of trees.

Most students probably walk by the sculpture scattered around the campus, without giving it much thought.

The tree-covered walkway wends around a stream that seems permanently covered in shade.

The campus itself is actually quite hilly, with a few bridges and steps crossing the stream.

The Haas School of Business is at the east side of the campus, a good 20 minute walk from the western edge.

It’s a cool, relaxing stroll to get to class at Berkeley. If I had to do this every day, though, I’d surely bring a bicycle with me to speed up cross-campus trips.
