We spy: Hogwarts is not so far away

You may not have noticed, but the Clog loves Harry Potter [1]just a little bit [2]. But we’re not the only ones. After all just watch Quidditch practice [3], listen in on a campus tour (every guide makes at least one Harry Potter reference [4]) or take a Harry Potter DeCal [5].

So it’s no surprise that we’re just a short trip away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: hogwarts880

The photo [6]was taken at the 880 Ashby north exit, between Emeryville [7]and Berkeley.

However, we think it would be more appropriate for the sign to be by the exit for UC Berkeley, rather than Ex’pression College for Digital Arts [8]. We suppose digital arts are kind of like magic [9], but c’mon, we have a quidditch team [10]! And besides, Bowles Hall [11] looks like Hogwarts. Either way, this certainly gives us hope amidst the recent release of the newest Twilight movie [12]. Hopefully it will take a while before the sign comes down — we all still need some reassurance after not getting our Hogwarts acceptances eight years ago.
