To London and back

As the title says, we’ve been to London. For a couple of days, mind you, but it was wonderful. It was a sort of compensation for our unlucky summer vacation last August in France.

We visited The London Eye at last! (absurdly expensive, by the way) Jasmijn was having a ball and I just couldn’t come close to the windows. Who’d say that.

And we’ve also been to Coram’s Fields and a nice park in Kensington, the one they’ve built in memory of Princess Dy and that has a Peter Pan theme to it. Nice! We’ve spent a couple of hours there, just allowing Jasmijn to climb and run around as much as she wanted.

And last but not least we’ve been to the Natural History Museum, where we’ve met some very interesting animatronics. The one of the young T-Rex is really impressive! It’s really worth a visit!

O outono chegou / The autumn has arrived

O outono realmente chegou a esta terra. O céu está cinzento, o frio está começando a bater… e ainda estamos no início de outubro! As árvores ainda mantêm suas folhas verdes e as ruas ainda permancem nuas. Mal posso esperar para vê-las cobertas de folhas laranjas e vermelhas. É uma das visões mais lindas que já tive!

The autumn has really arrived here. The sky is grey, there’s coldness in the air… and we’re still in the beginning of October! The trees are keeping their leaves green and the streets are still naked. I can’t wait to see thm covered in orange and red leaves. It’s one of the most beautiful sights I’ve seen in my life!
