First impression of L.A.: unbelievable!

This post is about some beautiful sights I found on the UCLA campus during my first week and my trip to Santa Monica Beach.

9 July 2019

My name is Yizixuan Yuan, and I'm from Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University! I have just finished my first week at UCLA — it was amazing. I notice that my trip happens to coincide with the centenary at UCLA.

The environment of the campus is quite beautiful and fascinating, with numerous distinctive buildings and a large amount of public green space. People here are also friendly and helpful. Walking on such a campus, I sincerely feel delightful every day. The climate here in L.A. is quite pleasant. The sun is shining brightly here, which makes me can’t help smiling.

I went to Santa Monica Beach with my friends during the weekend to have a wonderful sunbath. The blue sea was so refreshing, and we all enjoyed the incomparable beauty of her. We also went to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and had a nice lunch. The trip is memorable, and I hope my friends and I can have more fun and enjoy the study life at UCLA in the following weeks.
