A little hop across the pond

Actually, 1 bus, 3 trains, and 1 tube ride later we found ourselves visiting Christopher in London.  Talia was of course beyond excited to see a new city, as you can tell from this photo:

At last, an English language newspaper:


First brass rubbing! Talia was fascinated until she noticed how cool the lightbulbs in the Victoria and Albert were.

Harrods. No need to say any more. Talia was in heaven and brought home a very nice souvenir.

Just browsing.

Time to make my escape.

I love this photo because Talia is obviously engrossed in the menu while Christopher is trying to distract her. Luckily she managed to order a delicious fish and chips meal and dessert at the Tate Modern.

A lovely coffee with my friend Andrea and her husband Jacques. If I were in NY I would post a photo of the two of us together at Talia's age, but sadly I can't do it from here.

Another day, another museum lunch. British Museum in the new atrium.


Yes, I made Christopher carry both the baby and the backpack. He's awesome like that.

    I miss brass rubbings. Those were so much fun. England has so many fun kids toys too– all those little plastic figurines of knights on horses…
