This trip has flown by so fast--today was the last day of classes. I had coffee with one friend who was going to Ireland for the weekend before class and indulged in a Starbucks on High Street.
In Shakespeare, we watched a movie interpretation of Twelfth Night (1996) which featured a star-studded cast:
Helena Bonham Carter (Olivia)- Harry Potter series as Bellatrix Lestrange, Alice in Wonderland
Steven Mackintosh (Sebastian)- Underworld
Sir Ben Kingsley (Feste)- The Wackness, Shutter Island, Hugo
Imelda Staunton (Maria)- Harry Potter series as Dolores Umbridge
During Literature of Shakespeare, we walked to the University Parks, the Bodleian Library, the King's Arms, and Keble College Chapel. The bittersweet thing was that the trip came to full circle by revisiting the same places we went the same day we came to Oxford.
Then, the university held a farewell dinner for the students.
I am not ready to say goodbye just yet.
