Dreieichenhain, Germany - 12th September 2009

Medieval Market in Dreieichenhain

Hi Mommy,

today, Anja had visitors, and we all went to the medieval market in Dreieichenhain.

First, we had a big breakfast



Then we drove to Dreieichenhain, which is only about 30 minutes drive.

There, we admired some lovely wall paintings in the castle restaurant




As this guy allowed us to share his table, but not his food


we ordered some food ourselves: a nice Haxe (grilled leg of pork) with Sauerkraut and bread


Aaaah, delicious!!!  :D No wonder this is the national dish of southern Germany  :D

Then we wandered around the old castle ruins



and we even went underground to the Trolls and Dragons market in the castle cellar


There, Anja found a lovely dragon that she carried around on her shoulder


Um, did I tell you that Anja loves dragons?  :D

We also bought some nice medieval music at a stall


and wandered around the market until it got dark


What a lovely day!  :D

Oberursel near Frankfurt, Germany - 19th September 2009

There be dragons!  :D

Hi Mommy,

today, a large package arrived for Anja.
Of course, we all crowded around it. Another TV?

We got out the scissors to help Anja cut it open.


"Please leave that alone!" Anja said, "you'll just cut yourselves!"

And then she cut her thumb with the scissors trying to cut open the package


My goodness, the curses that woman knows!  :p Unfortunately, she won't permit me to repeat them here  :p

She should just let us TVs open the package!

When the package was finally open, we all wanted to see what was in it. Another TV?


Yaaaaaah, dragons!!!!  :o


More and more dragons came out of that package


and all were quite afraid. Except for me, that is. But then, of course, I am  a tiger.


What a dangerous place!  :o

The other TV's were repeating:

Dragons and tigers and rats, oh my
dragons and tigers and rats, oh my  ;)

The dragons were quite nice to us, though


and some of them just went perfectly with Ninni's coloring, don't you think?


Anja was all happy with these new additions to her dragon collection  :D

And as long as the dragons don't bite us, we don't mind them  :D

Percy arrives

Hi Mommy,

today, Percy arrived at Anja's house.
Anja said that he came all the way from Japan!

So, of course, we all crowded around him, to see what a Japanese Toy Voyager looks like and to welcome him.


We all admired the lovely postcard he brought from Japan (Japan! Wow! Even Anja was impressed!  :D ), and we all shared the Snickers bars that he brought.


Percy said that he likes to visit Haunted places.

Well, Anja had bought all kinds of weird stuff in the last few days.
And I mean: WEIRD!!!!  B)

Anja said to us that she will be hosting a big Halloween party for a lot of people on Saturday.

Then Percy looked all frightened. Tee hee hee, so much for being bold and liking to visit Haunted Places!  ;)

Well, I am looking forward to the party!  :D

I LOVE haunted places!  :D Well, of course I am a tiger, and I know no fear!

Snickering regards

Halloween Party at Anja's House!!!

Hi Mommy,

today, Anja had guests over for a big Halloween party.

Yes, I know, Halloween is in one week, but she always celebrates the October Meeting of the Frankfurt Pet Rat Owners Group with a big Halloween party at her house.

Halloween AND rat owners?  :o Sounds scary somehow....  :)

First, we helped Anja decorate the house.

First, the front door


Then, the hallway



Look at this sticker of rats coming out of the floor! It looks so real!


Then, we hung up all kinds of ghastly stuff



the kitchen door


the doors




"the brain" of the family


the picture gallery



the cobwebs (even the picture of Anja looks quite scary here!)


the pumpkin candles


the witch


and this guy in the cage who hollers "let me out of here!!!" when you press his belly


When the guests arrived, we had to sit still in a corner, because the whole house was full of people.

But we still got a good luck at the yukky-looking Halloween food that was being served (Anja made some, and the guests brought some).

chopped off fingers


dead fingers with pus


blood pudding with eyes


toenail cake




plague macaroni salad


blood punch


two rat cakes



But the very greatest surprise of the day was ... ta daaa...

the Puking Pumpkin!!!!


All of a sudden, we got a big scare! The Grim Reaper came in through the window!!!


But when we gave him a plate full of yukky-looking Halloween food, he decided not to kill us, after all!  :)


What a relief!  :D

So we could continue to have a good time. Which we certainly did!  :D


What a nice party!!!!
And the food LOOKED yukky, but it certainly tasted great!  :)

I am leaving for Russia!!!

Hi Mommy,

today, I got all excited:

Anja said I am leaving for Russia! Moscow area to be exact! WOW!!!

So, Anja got a Russian doll for my going away picture


and she kept singing a song

"Moskau, Moskau,
wirf die Glser an die Wand,
Russland ist ein schnes Land,
ha ha ha ha ha - hey!"

What the heck????  :o

So she translated for us:

"Moscow, Moscow
throw the glasses at the wall
Russia is a nice place for all
ha ha ha ha ha - hey!"

Still: what the heck?  :o

So she played us an old song which was popular when she was a young girl:

Moskau Moskau

Ah, well, we are kinda glad we live today!  :)

So, I am leaving for Russia today, Mommy!
Can't wait to get there!

Hi Mum!
I arrived to Russia! I was suffering at the post office several days waiting for Maria coming.
fortunately Anja gave me some chocolate and I had something pleasant during my journey.
I brought also postcard from Anja and sweets which I have not eaten.
In Maria`s flat I met one TV Hypno-dog. He is going to his first journey to Canada and tomorrow we will go to see him off.
Bye for now. I`m tired a little bit.
Yours Terry  ;)

Moscow, Russia - 6th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mummy!
Today was my first trip around Moscow. I visited Red Square!

Red Square (Russian: Кра́сная пло́щадь, Krsnaya plshchad’;) is the most famous city square in Moscow, and arguably one of the most famous in the world. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. As major streets of Moscow radiate from here in all directions, being promoted to major highways outside the city, Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow and of all Russia.

Here you can see one of my photos there!
I took much more and I will post them tomorrow.
Good night!
Terry  :rolleyes:

Moscow, Red Square, Russia - 6th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hi mum!
As I promised here are some photos from Red Square!
First we saw Resurrection Gate and State Historical Museum.
Than we entered the area of Square. You can see the view of Spasskaya Tower and  Saint Basil's Cathedral (it is so beautiful that I took more pictures near it and will show you in next update).
At the center of Red Square there is an skating-rink! But it is too expensive for me :(
And the last photo: me and character in children's literature and Russian cartoon Cheburashka!

Do you know him mum?

According to the story, Cheburashka is a funny little creature, unknown to science, who lives in the tropical forest. He accidentally gets into a crate of oranges, (possibly American or Australian as the crates are labeled in English) eats his fill, and falls asleep. Cheburashka is not a personal name; it is a species name invented by the puzzled director of the shop where he is found. The salesman takes the animal out and sits him on the table, but his paws are numb after the long time spent in the crate, and he tumbles down ("cheburakhnulsya" (чебурахнулся;), a Russian colloquialism, "tumbled" in English) from the table onto the chair and then from the chair, where he could not sit, for the same reason, onto the floor. The director of the shop, who witnesses the scene, called him Cheburashka. Words with this root were archaic in Russian; Uspensky gave them a new lease on life. (The 19th-century Explanatory Dictionary of the Living Great Russian language of Vladimir Dal gives the meaning of "cheburashka" as another name for the vanka-vstanka tumbling toy.)

Moscow, Russia - 10th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hi mummy!
We visited GUM!

With the faade extending for 242 m (790 ft) along the eastern side of Red Square, the Upper Trading Rows were built between 1890 and 1893 by Alexander Pomerantsev (responsible for architecture) and Vladimir Shukhov (responsible for engineering). The trapezoidal building features an interesting combination of elements of Russian medieval architecture and a steel framework and glass roof, a similar style to the great Victorian train stations of London. Nearby, also facing Red Square, is a very similar building, formerly known as the Middle Trading Rows.

We didn`t do shopping unfortunately, but it is very nice inside and everything is being prepared for New Year!
I had much fun there! Mummy, find me at the third photo ;)

Moscow, Russia - 12th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mum!
Today I want to show you photos from Moscow underground!  :)
It`s very cold outside these days (28 degrees below zero!) so I enjoy staying in underground.
The first station I visited was "Revolution Square"!

Ploshchad Revolyutsii (Russian: Пло́щадь Револю́ции, meaning Revolution Square) is one of the most famous stations of the Moscow Metro. It is located on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line and opened in 1938. The architect was Alexey Dushkin. The station features red and yellow marble arches resting on low pylons faced with black Armenian marble. The spaces between the arches are partially filled by decorative ventilation grilles and ceiling tracery. Each arch is flanked by a pair of bronze sculptures by M.G. Manizer depicting the people of the Soviet Union, including soldiers, farmers, athletes, writers, aviators, industrial workers, and schoolchildren. There are a total of 72 sculptures in the station.

There are many serious persons there! I was a little bit scared.

Moscow, Russia - 13th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Mummy!
Last Saturday I visited Arbat!

The Arbat is an approximately one-kilometer long pedestrian street in the historical centre of Moscow. The Arbat has existed at least since the 15th century, thus laying claim to being one of the oldest surviving streets of the Russian capital. It forms the heart of the Arbat District of Moscow. Originally the street formed part of an important trade route and was home to a large number of craftsmen.

I met there a cow! It allowed me to seat on her head :)
