Have you ever been to Venice? No, I don’t mean the Venice in Italy, I mean little Venice right in the heart of London. There is an area in London that has a lot of canals and is called Little Venice, because is it sort of a replica of the real Venice. I have never been to the real one, but I can imagine it now. One weird thing about the Little Venice is all those boats where people LIVE all year around. London is not as warm as Italy, so I still cannot figure out how they survive inside. Can you imagine leaving in a boat 24 / 7, the whole year – sleeping, taking shower, cooking and eating inside little floating piece of metal? Hmm…
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.
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?
Recently, I went for a drive with my parents. After about an hour we stopped in an area with lot of greenery. We decided to explore the area and after some walking we ended up in a large park, almost the size of a forest. There was even a lake inside. There I found something very interesting. I saw these plants with huge leaves. Each leaf was larger than my whole body!
Have you seen leaves of this size? Tell me if you have!
