The University Lake

It was an absolute scorcher in Hamilton today! I was down at the Waikato University this morning, where I work. The university campus is very picturesque with lavish greenery and several lakes. This is the largest lake on campus and next to the student green and eateries, where students tend to congregate during the day. On a day like today, everybody wants to be outside!

This student, who is here from Europe, was kind enough to allow me to photograph her while she was reading. This duck (see below) was just about to join her for some intellectual discussion on French philosophy. Luckily I had my camera to capture the shot!

Seems like a great and calm place to be studying

Is that a natural lake or human made?

Either way, a great spot to read!

Sounds a lovely and peaceful place to have a book as company!
