Happy Happy 2015!!!!!

My dear friends, how are you all???? Hope really good !!!!!

I'm back with the boys (who started school this morning : phew!!!!) from our trip to London….
What to say ????
We were so happy to be there! We walked a lot, we visited a lot, we enjoyed the company of some old friends from Egypt and Indonesia and I had the opportunity to meet for the first time my bloggy friend Emma (and : her lovely little girl Betsy, her kind hubby Darren and the sweet Tilly, their big dog!) : everything was great over there!!!!!

We landed in London Heathrow Airport at 6am of Saturday, 27th of December '14 ….
We arrived at our hotel just around 8:15, but we had to wait the check in time (2pm!) to enter our room, so we left our luggages at the hotel reception and we stepped out in the cold windy morning… just imagine our reactions, coming from the usual 32-35˙C in Maputo and being tired because of an intercontinental flight of 11 hours ….. !!!!

We walked along Cromwell Road to warm up, we looked at the beautiful windows of Harrods, we had a hot cappuccino at Starbucks and around 10am we cued at the entrance of the Natural History Museum…. we had lunch there, too, and when it was time we went back to the hotel, where we got our room…. we unpacked our luggages, had hot showers, put pjs on, had dinner (bought from a nearby supermarket), watched some tv and slept until next morning …..















… the happy future palaeontologist ...








Matteo chased by the shadow of an allosaurus, his fav….



… it all started with this movie….

when a boy scout, my hubby name was "Fennec Vivace" (= Lively Fennec)



… and in the main hall of the Earth Museum, there was the skeleton of a Stegosaurus, the world's most complete Stegosaurus's specimen…

  1. Hi Ale!

    so busy these days,
    I don't seem to get round to reading blogs.

    What a coincidene, we were also in London in the same period.
    You can read all about it here:

    We probably saw the same things!
    Perhaps our paths did even cross!

    In case I forgot :
    I wish you a very very pleasant new year!
    Enjoy!

    1. Ciao Brigitte!!!!
      it's so funny to know that you were there, too!!!! I was always thinking when in London : " If I meet someone who I know…." Maybe our paths really crossed!!!!!

  4. I am so glad that you had such a good time!! Gosh you look cold in that picture though!! I should think it was a massive shock to get off the plane to our temperatures from your heat at home! To my shame I have never been to the Natural History Museum, I better remedy that someday as it was obviously really interesting and fun! Glad you are all safe and sound and home again and that it was such a good trip. xx

    Looks like you've had a lovely holiday. Although the difference in temperature must have been quite a shock indeed. ;-)
