Love from London
Dear Marc, we've arrived in London where everythings a little more grand, a little more sophisticated and a little more weird.
For instance, the shower at our place is constructed to spurt water in two directions. Unfortunately, neither way is down. For the first time in history, it's possible to take a shower without getting wet. Why does this seem so British? All food items in our local store is made to be microwaved. All of it.
The first day, we went looking for parks, only to find that the majority are locked up. We saw empty playground after empty playground, with the two kids crying from frustration. Growing up in a socialist country, where everything, including the king's private palace, is open to the public, it all seemed exotic and exclusive in a not so great way.
Finally we found a park. And then a primary school with a small moat and guard dogs. Exotic! Exclusive!
Here's me and the kids in front of our place. And my fave boots.
And the poppa.
My brother came over to report for manny duty. He's with the kids as I type.
Ok, that's it for now. Must write important article covering the life of Bianca Jagger. The fashion years, the decades of working to save humanity from evils and George W Bush.
Do you know Bianca? Have any great input? Thank you!
