Trip to the US: Stanford University

>> Monday, May 13, 2013

The Stanford University offers a more "architectural" & nature-like sights, which are fantastic. I think we've only been to 1 part of it, but it was still good that we actually got there! We've still MUCH to explore...perhaps another trip ;)

Some of Stanford's Best Athletes - World Record Holders! *wow*

Track & Field/Stadium 

With such a lovely environment, I'm sure all the "smarty" students here would be even smarter (brains would probably tick better here...hahaha)! A great environment to study & relax in between studies + play sports & enjoy university life with friends....*dreams*

Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research 

There were fruit trees right outside the building (as above)!
I think they're either oranges/grapefruits/lemons...they're still yellowish-orange, so I'm not sure which kinda tree this is since I've never seen any of such fruit trees back in Malaysia :P

Hoover Tower
We were led to this tower by the lovely sound of the bells chiming out a song that sounded familiar, yet I've no clue of the title...hahaha...this tower was completed in 1941 to mark the 50th anniversary of Stanford University. It has a carillon of FORTY-EIGHT bells which chimed out the beautiful music that filled the air on that sunny evening! *love* You can actually go on a tour to the top of the tower, which will cost you $2.00 from 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. daily.

Lovely lovely evening
I LOVE the view of the sun rising/setting...the ray of sunlight bursting through the clouds is just perfect to make my heart leap with joy & excitement :D 

I found this 'cute' :P
Lawn...renovated...? Never came across such a phrase back home...haha... 

These trees are MIGHTY!
Wait 'til I get to Yosemite...kekeke...these trees will be dwarfs! 

If I'm not mistaken, this is the center of arts studies... 

Center for History Studies
Such intricate art-work... 

This is one of my FAVOURITE photos - NON-edited!
Managed to get this straight from the camera...LOVE THE BURST OF COLOURS - sun-light!!! 

At one of the building's corridors...looks like a good place for photos ;)
If I'm not mistaken, this is the Department of Slavic Languages & Literature.

I am in Hawaii...not! :P
Looks quite like it, eh? 

Fountain outside the library..since 1934!

100 years & counting...fuh! Such rich history... 

Hello America :D
After attempting to take more than 5 shots, I finally managed to get this one taken just perfectly. 

It has been an interesting "self-tour" walk around this part of the famous Stanford University in Palo Alto area. We took approximately  1.5 hours just walking around, taking photos & being mesmerised by the unique buildings, the architecture & the natural elements/plants as well. I would say that it's a must see if you happen to be here (especially if you like the sight of old buildings). There's nothing really much at Palo Alto, but this is something that you'll definitely not get back in Malaysia, so enjoy it to the max! :D

I doubt I'll ever get to enter Stanford *not a smarty*
