Nice breakfast with frosted flakes!

Hi Mommy,

today, Anja and we had a very nice breakfast. Lots of little packages with cereal, and even some frosted flakes!

Dreieichenhain, Germany - 12th September 2009

By: AnjaM

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/48/5970848.21251085.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/92/5970892.65660500.560.jpg

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

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/87/5970887.fdbb68e1.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/85/5970885.e3b06c13.560.jpg


http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/44/5970844.acdc7e4b.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/46/5970846.f629a1c9.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/36/5970836.511c7977.560.jpg

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

Then we wandered around the old castle ruins

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/31/5970831.3662f285.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/28/5970828.844f3a50.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/26/5970826.a0effcb5.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/24/5970824.565759d4.560.jpg

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

We also bought some nice medieval music at a stall

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/81/5970881.eb6d2171.560.jpg

and wandered around the market until it got dark

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/08/65/5970865.16a3943b.560.jpg

What a lovely day!  :D

Hugs
Terry

Oberursel near Frankfurt, Germany - 19th September 2009

By: AnjaM

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.

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/83/6039683.2140f2c4.560.jpg

"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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/80/6039680.4beb4e3d.560.jpg

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?

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/78/6039678.08fcde8a.560.jpg

Yaaaaaah, dragons!!!!  :o

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/76/6039676.a90eff51.560.jpg

More and more dragons came out of that package

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/75/6039675.f96ef759.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/68/6039668.c962150d.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/73/6039673.c486e13e.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/12/96/70/6039670.70edaed7.560.jpg

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

Hugs
Terry

By: AnjaM

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.

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/09/6360109.001eeebb.560.jpg

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.

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/08/6360108.f9c8882e.560.jpg

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
Terry

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/13/6360113.f64d71a7.560.jpg

Then, the hallway

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/11/6360111.8d929ee4.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/27/6360127.51446c1a.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/10/6360110.88b218db.560.jpg

Then, we hung up all kinds of ghastly stuff

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/15/6360115.78f84afe.560.jpg


http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/16/6360116.588362f3.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/17/6360117.8d59283c.560.jpg

the doors

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/19/6360119.eb0d0084.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/20/6360120.a9d1bdee.560.jpg

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/24/6360124.bfbf8ba7.560.jpg

"the brain" of the family

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/34/6360134.0062aa1f.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/29/6360129.f1e941cb.560.jpg

the pumpkin candles

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/37/6360137.2ef2d5fd.560.jpg

the witch

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/30/6360130.04fa2815.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/01/31/6360131.1c8a9933.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/00/90/6360090.96749fab.560.jpg

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

the Puking Pumpkin!!!!

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/00/94/6360094.593642ac.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/00/27/6360027.133971eb.560.jpg

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/00/52/6360052.c67f0f07.560.jpg

What a relief!  :D

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/00/82/6360082.f05a684c.560.jpg

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

Hugs
Terry

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

http://u1.ipernity.com/13/71/35/6617135.892a1f14.560.jpg

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!

Hugs
Terry

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!

Quote:
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?

Quote:
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.)


Hugs,
Terry!

Moscow, Russia - 10th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hi mummy!
We visited GUM!

Quote:
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"!

Quote:
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!

Quote:
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 :)
