Durham - The City of Medicine

Hello lovelies,

Not sure if I showed around campus and town yet, if not, then this post is way overdue! Durham is an interesting town (they say city, but this is not a city), lots of intellectual people live here apparently. Here are some random facts about Durham that you might not have known (Americans love to rank everything!) :

# 1 Greatest Basketball town to visit (with Duke being the best in the country)
# 1 Best Place to Retire
#1 in America's Foodiest Town (haha! who rank's the foodiest town!)
# 2 Best Green Cities
# 4 Most Affordable city to live
# 6 in America's smartest cities
# 7 Best place for college students to live

Here are some of my pics from the first couple of weeks!
