Eisingen + Königsbach-Stein, Germany - 29th March 2012

By: agentsmith

hey mum!

this is how Hase and I woke up yesterday:

http://s14.directupload.net/images/120329/nmkypb5i.jpg

the flowers also were already awake

http://s14.directupload.net/images/120329/56jwm8xf.jpg

then, we had a delicious breakfast at Café Maier's in Königsbach-Stein! LittleLuzi went with us

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/iffzxxwc.jpg

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120329/aacsr5tm.jpg

after that, Hase and I thought about what to do now

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120329/wlbppprk.jpg

we decided to go outside and pick a bunch of flowers

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/m2jxqoa6.jpg

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/5bof9dl9.jpg

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/ggffjxsj.jpg

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120329/aigyrz55.jpg

then I had to refresh myself in the water ;)

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/eo4u535p.jpg

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/jwtufbzj.jpg

we put it in a vase..

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120329/afza4k8o.jpg

what do you think? beautiful, right? ;)

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120329/55ipnwvg.jpg

in the evening, the flowers were tired and went to sleep..

http://s1.directupload.net/images/120329/faxgllfk.jpg

..so we also went to bed

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120406/j9ddvsvm.jpg

in the end we had one sweet Flammkuchen for dessert.. oh my god it's burning! do we have to call the firefighters?  :o
nooo.. our hosts told us that the Flammkuchen is burning because there was Calvados put over it, they light it up, the alcohol is burning and the taste rests! suuuuper good!

http://s7.directupload.net/images/120406/rah2eh4z.jpg

Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada - 29th April 2012

By: Cheshire

Hey mom!

This morning we decided we should do some activities outside today... but then we looked out the window and saw that the sky was covered in dark grey clouds! :(
We waited a bit to see if it would rain... and it started snowing! So we decided to go out anyway!
It was a little bit cold but not too much (I was lucky to have a pretty scarf to keep me warm! :) ), so we went to the park. 

http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/2251/tablethree.jpg
http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/2720/tablebine.jpg

We decided to go play!

http://img848.imageshack.us/img848/860/allstruc.jpg
http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/7127/allstruc2.jpg

I think this is a pig... It looks weird though!

http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/1484/pigall.jpg

This one is weird too...

http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/1079/whalebine.jpg

Oh look! There was a tic tac toe game! Mr. Furrington accepted to play with me. :D

http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/5233/furrtictac1.jpg
http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/2548/binetictac1.jpg

It was a draw... Oh well, it was fun! :rolleyes:

Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada - 10th May 2012

By: Cheshire

Hello mommy!

The weather hasn't been very nice lately, it's raining all the time. :( But today it was sunny and warm so we thought it would be nice to go outside! Host mom said we should go downtown Saint-Hyacinthe to visit. It's an older part of the city, so there are a lot of small boutiques and restaurants and old-looking buildings!

We invited one of my host mom's friends and took the bus!

http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/3407/dsc02002vo.jpg

And we got off the bus to go walk downtown.

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/3999/dsc01929s.jpg

First we decided to go to the library to look at the books.

http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/4386/dsc01928u.jpg

There were a lot of books!

http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/4208/dsc01921e.jpg
http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/4737/dsc01923s.jpg

We even met a friend who lives in the library!

http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/2580/dsc01924ov.jpg

Then we decided to go to the market, so we continued walking down the streets.

http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/5315/dsc01932m.jpg

And finally we saw the market! In the summer there are farmers who come here to sell all sorts of fruits and vegetables, but for now the weather is still too cold. So we went inside to see the other sellers.

Look! We saw other crabs in the market! It made us sad though, because people buy them to eat them. :(

http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5339/dsc01938i.jpg

We stopped at the bakery... Everything looks so yummy!

http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/1482/dsc01940a.jpg

Look at all the cool cupcakes!

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/373/dsc01945pf.jpg
http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/8813/dsc01946h.jpg

We didn't want to eat anything though because it was almost dinner time, but we took a hot chocolate with Belgian chocolate!

http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/6580/dsc01951i.jpg

We sat at a table to rest for a while.

http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/7696/dsc01949xy.jpg

We went back outside and saw a small fountain!

http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/82/dsc01918iz.jpg
http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/2977/dsc01920b.jpg

Then we decided to go somewhere for dinner. We didn't want to go somewhere too expensive so we went to a small fast-food restaurant and host mom ordered a French-Canadian dish, called "poutine". It's simply french fries and cheese with brown gravy.

http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/1180/dsc01956hl.jpg

After dinner we continued to walk around for a while.

http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/5873/dsc01960ye.jpg
http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/9985/dsc01962ue.jpg
http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/2079/dsc01963qt.jpg
http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/6043/dsc01987ao.jpg
http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/6136/dsc01988o.jpg

Then we decided to stop at a bistro to have a smoothie for desert!

http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/7828/dsc01970zv.jpg
http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/1861/dsc01969ok.jpg

It was really yummy but now I'm full!

The view from the terrace was nice!

After that we went to a small park.

And we found this memorial for the people who lost their lives during the war... It says "In memory of our glorious who disappeared during the wars".

There was also the City Hall beside the park!

The sky was getting cloudy again and we were tired so we decided to start walking back to the bus stop to head back home.

And we took the bus again!

I had a lot of fun today! My host mom said next week-end we should be able to go to Montreal, a big city here in Quebec... I'm looking forward to it!

Love,

Montreal, Canada - 13th May 2012

By: Cheshire

Hey mommy!

Guess what! We visited a new city today! :D We went to Montreal, a big metropolis here in Quebec. I was excited to visit a new, bigger city. We were supposed to go earlier, but sadly we had to wait a few more days... But we visited a lot of places and took a lot of pictures!

We were lucky because it was sunny and warm today... It's been raining a lot lately. :(

We had to take the bus first to go to Longueuil, which is a city located on the South Shore, close to Montreal.

http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/9119/dsc02102t.jpg
http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/3978/dsc02111l.jpg
http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/6287/dsc02114ac.jpg

Finally, after about an hour long ride, the bus arrived at Longueuil, so we got off and walked through the station to go to the subway station.

http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/1023/dsc02115r.jpg

We went down the stairs to wait for the subway.

http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/4624/dsc02119sf.jpg
http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/2273/dsc02122f.jpg

And finally it arrived! So we got in.

http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/4693/dsc02127lz.jpg

We got off two stations later, at the Berri-UQAM station in Montreal. Here is a map of the subway stations. The subway line we had taken is the yellow one.

http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/6099/dsc02134x.jpg

And here is a map of Montreal! As you can see, it's a big island.

http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/3306/dsc02139u.jpg

We had to take another subway to get to our location, so we went up the escalators and followed the signs to the next subway we had to take.

http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/6637/dsc02140r.jpg
http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/8620/dsc02146kd.jpg

We got off at Peel station.

http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/5744/dsc02150k.jpg
http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/2145/dsc02151x.jpg
http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/4408/dsc02156kc.jpg

And finally we went outside!

http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/1601/dsc02157x.jpg
http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/8615/dsc02161gc.jpg

We went to a library to look at the books and then we went to an underground shopping center.

http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/5957/dsc02165xz.jpg

We were a bit thirsty so we stopped at Starbucks to get a frappucino. It was really yummy!
http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/7055/dsc02167iq.jpg

The shopping center was bigger than it looked!

http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/677/dsc02172sx.jpg

There was a big fountain on the first floor!

http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/9964/dsc02175i.jpg
http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/939/dsc02176copy.jpg
http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/9751/dsc02177copy.jpg
http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/1241/dsc02178copy.jpg

Then we walked through the Eaton Center... which is another shopping center!

http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/6272/dsc02180u.jpg


There was an old-looking telephone booth. :stare:
http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/165/dsc02184r.jpg

The Eaton Center is quite big too!

http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/6015/dsc02186ek.jpg
http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/7712/dsc02188yc.jpg

Then we decided to take the subway again to get to another part of the city.

http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/6156/dsc02192j.jpg
http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/9435/dsc02195p.jpg

We got off at the Place-des-Arts station.

http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/2258/dsc02197va.jpg

The "Place des Arts" is a place where there are a lot of shows and plays, so there was a long corridor with posters of all the upcoming shows and events!

http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/4655/dsc02200uf.jpg

And there was another corridor with animations displayed on the walls. It was pretty!

http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/6748/dsc02204ad.jpg

Then we walked through the Desjardins Complex... Which is ALSO a shopping center! :rolleyes:

http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/6950/dsc02210p.jpg

We got a little lost because we couldn't find the signs that indicated where the subway station was... But fortunately we found a map!

http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/6015/dsc02186ek.jpg

And we found our way!

http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/8053/dsc02213g.jpg

We didn't take the subway yet though, we decided to go outside first to walk around and visit more than just shopping centers and subways. :P

So we go out from the station, which is beside the Montreal Congress Center. The trees we full of flowers, it was beautiful and it smelled good! :)

http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/6751/dsc02223xk.jpg
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/9710/dsc02216gt.jpg
http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/5641/dsc02224a.jpg

And we met some pigeons... There are a lot of them in Montreal!

http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/1381/dsc02222y.jpg

We continued walking.

http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/2808/dsc02228go.jpg
http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/8766/dsc02231tw.jpg

And suddenly I noticed there were signs with Chinese writtings everywhere... So I ask my host mom, had we been walking so long that we were now China?? :o
She said we were actually in Montreal's Chinatown! Which shouldn't really be called "Chinatown", because not all the restaurants and boutiques are Chinese, some are Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, etc.

http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/1234/dsc02235w.jpg
http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/7759/dsc02238copy.jpg
http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/8152/dsc02242lp.jpg

There was a cute graffiti!

http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/8940/dsc02243wh.jpg

http://img857.imageshack.us/img857/4901/dsc02248uv.jpg
http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/1042/dsc02249p.jpg
http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/4743/dsc02253hk.jpg
http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/7076/dsc02258q.jpg

There are gates like this with foo lions on most of the streets you can take to enter Chinatown.

http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/3503/dsc02254copy.jpg
http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/5853/dsc02255copy.jpg
http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/4920/dsc02256copy.jpg

As soon as you cross the gate you get back to the "normal" town... It's strange but it's fun!

http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/9118/dsc02261wh.jpg
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/7443/dsc02263h.jpg

We walked back to the subway station to meet with some of my host mom's friends.

http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/3723/dsc02267ly.jpg
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/4121/dsc02274dc.jpg
http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/7241/dsc02276fj.jpg

We got off at Berri-UQAM again to wait for them.

http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/2890/dsc02280rc.jpg
http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/2971/dsc02282y.jpg

Then we decided to go to the "Quartier Latin" (literally translated it would be "Latin Neighbourhood" ) to find a restaurant for dinner.

This is the "UQAM", which is the University of Quebec in Montreal.

http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/4215/dsc02287bx.jpg

There were all kinds of boutiques and restaurants.

http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/2519/dsc02290i.jpg
http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/4589/dsc02294ipw.jpg

Then we saw a really big statue!

http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/7854/dsc02295copy.jpg
http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/7674/dsc02296copy.jpg
http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/9717/dsc02297copy.jpg

We finally decided to go to a restaurant called "La Bulle au Carré". It's a French restaurant.

http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/4826/dsc02300uw.jpg

There were comic books and games on the tables to read an play while we waited!

http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/8846/dsc02301copy.jpg
http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/2820/dsc02302copy.jpg
http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/1518/dsc02318gz.jpg
http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/4201/dsc02320copy.jpg

We looked at the menu.

http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/1382/dsc02303t.jpg

It was hard to choose! There were mostly hamburgers and crepes but they all sounded so good!

http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/8985/dsc02311zx.jpg

We decided to play Connect Four while we were waiting for our orders to be ready. Mr. Furrington agreed to play with me!

http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/4417/dsc02325copy.jpg
http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/7909/dsc02324copy.jpg
http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/7909/dsc02331u.jpg
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/1980/dsc02334n.jpg

And I won!! :D

http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/9162/dsc02336wc.jpg

We still had to wait a little bit though.

http://img859.imageshack.us/img859/6679/dsc02326z.jpg
http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/1993/dsc02344j.jpg
http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/8928/dsc02322uy.jpg

And finally our plates arrived! Dont you think it looks yummy?

http://img806.imageshack.us/img806/1964/dsc02345wu.jpg

Well, it was! :)

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/5916/dsc02350ty.jpg

Then we ordered a crepe to share for desert. It's not really visible on the picture, but the waitor set the crepe on fire after he put it on our table! :stare:
My host mom told me it was a "crêpe flambée", so it's normal... that reassured me!

http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/4059/dsc02351j.jpg

It was good but now I was really full!

http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/1846/dsc02355v.jpg

After dinner we walked again a bit, and stopped in a park.

http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/9496/dsc02358copy.jpg
http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/1235/dsc02359copy.jpg
http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/3612/dsc02361copy.jpg
http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/8798/dsc02362ia.jpg
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/8752/dsc02366h.jpg
http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/5866/dsc02368c.jpg
http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/2116/dsc02373s.jpg
http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/8286/dsc02374i.jpg

And finally we got to our final destination: the "Café Campus"! It is a small showbar, and we were going to see a humorists show!

http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6071/dsc02377q.jpg
http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/4796/dsc02390zj.jpg
http://img845.imageshack.us/img845/1785/dsc02400copy.jpg

We took pictures during the show, but unfortunately they were all dark and blurry because we weren't allowed to use flashs. :(
The show was funny though!

It ended late, so we walked back to my host mom's friend's car and went back home to get some rest.

http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/9673/dsc02465yc.jpg

I had a really fun day overall! It was nice to visit a new city and we were tired from walking so much but it was worth it!
Maybe we can try to go to Montreal again soon... My host mom says there are a lot of other places to visit since it's so big!
She also said we will most likely be going on a trip to Gatineau, a city near Ottawa, the capital of Canada, next week-end... It would be fun!

I hope you are doing well,
Bine

We gave her a group hug!

http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/6341/dsc02535o.jpg

She had brought candies with her so we shared them.

http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/1201/dsc02537sc.jpg

Then we played with Gaby, one of my host mom's cats!
