On Sunday, I went to a place called Beachy Head. By the time we got there it was a bit dark and very foggy, so it felt like we are on a different planet, very spooky. Since it is next to the sea there were cliffs around. Parents were telling me scary stories how the edges of the cliffs break off sometimes, so I did not go to close to the edge. Here are some photos we took.

Farnborough Air Show in England is one of the biggest air shows in the world. Couple of years ago I went to this air show with my father. I saw so many planes and helicopters which I had never seen so close to me. I even saw the Airbus A380 takeoff and land! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy….
I would like to know if you you like to visit Air Shows. Tell me below!
This beautiful view is from a hill in London. It is called Primrose Hill, and is in the north side of Regent’s Park. On a clear day, you can see quite a bit of London from the hill. Be ready to walk uphill for about 10 minutes! It is a little hard, but once you get to the top, you can sit and relax, and enjoy the wonderful views! I took this picture from the top. What do you think?
Good news. I have turned 8! Some kids get a pet – may be a dog or a cat. For me, it is time for some new cool, smart toys.
To start with, my parents got me this box which contained a large collection of strange looking parts. After only a few minutes I knew I was going to build a robot. My own robot. I have even given it a name. It is called M1.
Well, after much discussion and reading, I was able to assemble it. I took some pictures of my progress, and here they are.
Don’t forget, this is only the beginning……
Paris really is the city of lights! I was always curious about France, its language and food. Then my parents took me to Paris! I stayed in the heart of Paris, so it was easy to walk around and see all the nice places. I really liked walking by the river. But I liked Eiffel Tower the most. I even went to the top. You can see all of Paris from up there. Night time on the tower is even more beautiful. Paris really is the city of lights.
Can you tell what I have drawn? It is an Alien City. Yes, a city on another planet. Of course, it is just my imagination! Maybe it actually exists somewhere in the universe. A city where all structures are round, like circles. Do you like it? What would your city look like?
Look at my future mega city! I think the future will bring even more cars, trains, tracks, bridges and machines. How cool is that! I built it out of big Lego blocks, Tomica train tracks and Tomica buildings. Do you like it? Can you build a better one? Why not let me know me? Just post a comment!
As a family we LOVE traveling. Does not matter where really – in England or outside, as long as there is something new to see and experience. This time we went to … Brussels – the capital of Belgium. We saw some interesting things, but two of them were very memorable. One is the Manneken Pis – a small sculpture of a little boy peeing into the fountain – HAHAHA! But most amazing one was the Atomium! This was the most unbelievable and unusual structure I have ever seen
It was built in 1958 for the World Fair. It was designed to last for 6 months only, but became so popular that it is still around. The structure has a shape of an iron cell, consisting of nine iron atoms magnified 165 billion times! (Wikipedia said this!). People can go into spheres using the escalators in the tubes – one of them is the longest in Europe. When it was first built, the structure did not have any supporting columns on the side, but Wind Tunnel test concluded that 80km/h wind will easily topple it over and the supporting columns were added. Still the whole thing looks amazing like a spaceship!
I don’t know why they call England a cold country while there are other countries that are colder like Canada. Have you ever gone to Canada? I have! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! I went to the CN tower! (The tallest building in Canada!) There is picture of it to the left. I also went to a place called Niagara Falls – which is a huge water fall that separates Canada and America. There is also bridge from America to Canada and you can change a country just by crossing the bridge. But it is the same cold on both side, so no need to change really.
