Greetings from Jolly Olde England. While the weather has been somewhat dismal (I guess we’re getting acclimatized for our return to rainy Vancouver at the end of January), we’ve had a fabulous time visiting with family over the past couple of weeks. So much so that we haven’t felt like blogging (I think we have a bit of blog fatigue as well, but I imagine we will squeeze out a few more).
We’re heading into London today and then on to France to visit more family, but here’s a recap in pictures of our time in England (and a bonus picture of our very special Christmas non-dinner in Ethiopia).
And now a word about our Christmas dinner. We decided to skip Christmas entirely this year (Ethiopia doesn’t celebrate the holiday until January 7th, and it remains a primarily religious occasion). However, we did plan on delivery from our favorite restaurant — Ice Blue — for dinner. Alas, they let us down. After hours of waiting, Karl went to the corner store around 9:30 pm and returned with… corn flakes, milk and potato chips. Bon Appetite!
