Despaired as it may seem from the fact that I was oh - so far away from home and into the uncertainty of a new but yet another wonder of somewhat a different environment – none compared to any place I have been to. The moment I was accommodated into this impressive university; I thought to myself how it would make me feel at home. Leaving my family and the very simple Island life and bringing me here by some good fortune to this sophisticated standard of living that most would want to be a part of. Fortunate as it may seem but unfortunately the heart could not withstand the burden of adjusting, not for an instance!

My curiosity brought me to a location; an instant center of attraction I would say because the moment I sat eyes on this very place it besieged me and brought me to understand for a wee moment that really there was a meaning to everything. The surrounding for one is a soothing tool to the burden I was already experiencing and truly enough I was instantly been relieved for some reason. Why? ... The Drunken Moon Lake as it is famously known displays a simple architectural wonder of landscaping as its surroundings has a natural touch. The singing birds for one, the swaying trees that surround it and the different types of fish that swim in it somehow reflect the very essence of nature so how could a person like me just ignore the opportunity of just spending some time around this lake to witness what it offers. Indeed it is moments to treasure for this beautiful location offers somehow a refreshing and solace sentiment for the heart and mind that is and will be wounded.

An acknowledgement to the University is what I would like to conclude with for creating such a beautiful place within the compound to cater for any despair or leisure as it has given me a wonderful feeling and thought of adjusting and enjoying my new environment.

For any new settler, it is advisable therefore to do spare a moment to visit this wonderful and yet exhilarating spot, the Drunken Moon lake...
