I wandered around UVA’s campus on Saturday while Daniel picked up some books from the library. It’s an overwhelmingly majestic place, full of secret garden pathways with blooms and buzzing insects, and century old buildings set in the valleys and hills of the Piedmont.
Today we went over to UVA so that Daniel could turn in some paperwork and get his student ID. I enjoyed the view immensely (besides all the insane construction – the middle of the grounds looks post-apocalyptic). The building where his department is housed is in a beautiful, modern style. After we completed his student duties, we journeyed to the downtown mall to visit Daedalus Books, a used bookstore with three stories and over 100,000 used books. We also poked around a stored called Artifacts, where we got to pet an adorable Pomeranian.
