host mum's home, Switzerland - 23rd January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello home
Yesterday we had another farewell party. HelgaHH will travel back home, and Rocky Raccoon starts his first journey. Host mum baked a cake and took a group photo.

As long as one can show us yet, she said. Then we ate cake and potato chips and crackers. We drank one or another glass of wine.

Late at night we came upon a sentimental mood. Hase sang with fervor sad songs

until host mum woke up and reminded us that even more people live in this house who want to sleep now. We had a last drink and went to bed.
This morning it was time. We said goodbye to HelgaHH and Rocky. We gave both a group hug

in the kitchen, Switzerland - 26th January 2013

By: Jasper

Yoohoo,
Today a new TV arrived. A sweet dog named Wolley. He is from Guinea and will spend some time with us.
We sat in our basket and told and laughed when suddenly a pointy nose sniffed over the edge.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251674_zps8ca45058.jpg

It was Wolley, who had just arrived. We welcomed him kindly.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251675_zps16f6be1b.jpg

As he slept, he was very tired after his journey, we decided to cook a soup for him. A hot soup would be the right on such a cold day. We had a lot to do. Chop bacon, onions and lots of vegetables

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251689_zpsfff4ddb9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251690_zps47cea24d.jpg

into small pieces.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251691_zps2307bb08.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251692_zps363cf2de.jpg

Fry the bacon and onions. Barley and small white beans are added. Then fill with meat broth. And then - charging the battery of the camera. After 1 1/2 hours, we added in the vegetables, stirred,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1251703_zpsbc9181f6.jpg

and let cook for another 30 minutes.
For dinner, we enjoyed a delicious soup.

Satisfied and happy

Lichtensteig, Switzerland - 2nd February 2013

By: Jasper

Hello mum,
the weather is going crazy. On Wednesday the sun was shining (as host mum had to work) and it was 14 degrees. Then we had bucketfuls of rain and storm. This morning it started to snow again. Within ten minutes everything was white. No chance to go outside. And then the bad luck, host mum has a torn ligament in the foot. Dolivia, she is a pharmacy TV gives us instructions on how we have to maintain host mum.

We'll get her back on her feet. On both feet.
Until then
Lancel

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P2041739_zps4c83c511.jpg

You never know when the next time it is something to eat and my road is long. After Beijing is my journey. Wow, I'm going to see China. The weather here makes me a little easier to say goodbye. It's horrible, but my friends

and then starts the long journey.
See you soon mum

Today we had a walk near Tian'anmen Square, a landmark in China. We saw Tian'anmen gate tower (picture 1) and Great Hall of the People (picture 2). XinhuaMen (picture 3) is not far from there, it is the gate of the government. Beyond these traditional architecture, there also is a modern one, National Centre for the Performing Arts (picture 4). Opera, drama, and concert played in the centre everyday.

It is said that there is a little hippo in the zoo. So we went there to see it. It is born 6 days ago, very cute. But it is in the exhibition room, a little far from us. So I didn't get a clear photo with it. After spending a long time with the hippo, we had a walk in the zoo. We met alpaca and swan in our way.

In the night, fireworks crackled across the sky. Today is the fifth day in Chinese new year. There is a tradition to do fireworks display in the day.

Another Spring Festival carnival. It is held in Yuanmingyuan Park. Again, food, commodity, and performance. The difference is there is a big lake in this park. People were skating on the ice.

Today is the last of the holiday. It's very interesting. And I think I like Spring Festival very much.

Beijing, China - 23rd February 2013

By: qball

We visited Lugou Bridge today. Bridge construction was begun in 1189 and completed four years later.

There is a stone stelae at the extremes of the bridge, on which wrote "The Moon over the Lugou Bridge at Dawn" in the handwriting of an Emperor.

Lining the bridge are two rows of carved white marble balustrades topped by posts carved with figures of lions.

By: qball

The weather is not good today. Very strong wind!

So we decided to stay home and surf on the Internet. Suddenly, we saw a picture which is very interesting. And my host told me that here appeared the word "knight". Then we began our language study.

The Chinese characters are so difficult to write. I tried one of the word. Very hard. The pronunciation of knight is Q Sh in Chinese. And castle is Chng Bǎo.

There are many pavilions here. We took a careful look, to learn the details. It is very exquisite.
