That's My World Tuesday

I live in the North Carolina piedmont near the center of the state in an area known as the triangle. The triangle originally referred to the three major research universities which are located in this area, and later also included the Research Triangle Park (RTP) after it was started in 1959. For this post I'll show specific examples of how each of the towns comprising the triangle are part of my world.

North Carolina State University (NCSU) is located in Raleigh where I live. The top left shot was taken at NCSU’s Raulston Arboretum. The company I work for is headquartered in Durham which also is the town where Duke University is located. The top right shot was taken at Duke Gardens. The University of North Carolina (UNC) is located in Chapel Hill where I go for melanoma follow up appointments. The bottom left shot is of a courtyard in the center of UNC Hospitals. The bottom right shot was taken near the RTP exit when I was driving to Durham to pick up some work.

There is always something going on in a university town, and you have three.

I love that you made a collage with these.

Wow! Triangle of research universities! Every body living there must be very intelligent too.

So that's why it's called the triangle. I had heard that expression, but never knew why that area of North Carolina was called that. What a good idea to assemble those photos into a collage. Nice!

It's a lovely area. The Duke campus is quite striking. So is UNC, but in a very different way.

Looks like a wonderful place, all of them. Not like the bermuda triangle then.... *giggles*

I so wish that I could "beam" myself over there.
