Heidelberg, Germany - 8th November 2011

By: nuriayasmin

Hi Mum

nuriayasmin is going to get another cat. Hopefully it's as nice as Sammy, it's likely to arrive here next week from the animal shelter. So today we went to the pet shop to buy some stuff for the new cat.

However, first we played in the leaves which had fallen off the trees.


Here's another picture of the house where DuDette and I currently live. We're on the 4th floor, just under the roof.


Finally the two of us and Willy Olson sat down in nuriayasmin's bike basket and off we went. We passed a horse stable and cycled along some fields as the pet shop is situated a bit outside of town. Here are some pictures for you to see:





While nuriayasmin chose the things for the new cat, we had a look around and found the pet shop quite interesting.



Then we all went back home.

Heidelberg, Germany - 9th November 2011

Today DuDette and I strolled along the river Neckar and had a look at the Old Bridge which you can see on many postcards of Heidelberg. The castle is situated in the mountains over the Old Bridge but due to the fog you can't see much of it on the photos. We may climb up to the castle next week, depending on the weather.

Heidelberg - At home, Germany - 14th November 2011

By: nuriayasmin

Hi Mum

This morning DuDette and I had a piece of cake and a cup of hot chocolate for breakfast. It was very tasty.


Afterwards nuriayasmin gave us all her textbooks and grammars and each TV chose a language.


I chose Slovak which is spoken in the small country of Slovakia. I learnt some useful sentences:
My name is DuDu: Moje meno je DuDu.
How are you?: Ako sa máš?
I have a great time: Mám sa skvele.
I'm hungry. : Som hladný.


Then I said "hello" to the new cat Shelley who came to live here last week. She was abandoned and spent two months at the animal shelter.


There were also some household tasks to do. I helped to get the clean clothes out of the washing-machine.


I had a look from the balcony but it was very cold and so I was happy to stay home.


We had Chinese noodles and orange juice for lunch. I tried to teach the other TV's how to eat with sticks but they all found it very difficult.


In the afternoon we gathered around the Swedish cookies nuriayasmin had bought and told each other about our journeys and language studies. We also had a big cup of hot tea.



Afterwards we helped nuriayasmin to write some postcrossing cards. Each of us was allowed to write one card. Mine went to China :-).


Last not least it was time to update my travelog. I'm sending you a big hug.

Heidelberg Castle, Germany - 17th November 2011

By: nuriayasmin

Dear Mum

Today a bunch of ToyVoyagers invaded Heidelberg Castle. There are stairs which lead to the castle which is situated in the mountains over the city and we climbed them - about 400 I guess. Afterwards we needed to take a rest and took the chance for a group photo.


I had a look down to the city. It's a bit foggy up here as always during the last two or three weeks.


The castle of Heidelberg was built in the 13th century. For a while there were two castles, one situated a bit higher than the remains of the current one.  During the Thirty Years War (1618 - 1648) the castle was attacked and partly destroyed for the first time. In 1692 the castle was destroyed by the French and although basic repairs were made, the castle has basically remained a ruin since then. In the early 19th century a French count became interested in the castle and served as a voluntary castle warden. Between 1897 and 1900 the castle was partly reconstructed and became one of Germany's main tourist attractions.






Another look to the city centre, the Old Bridge and the river Neckar.


Bye, DuDu

Dear Mum

Today Advent time begins. In Germany it's common to put an Advent wreath on the table and each Sunday to come one candle more will be lit, so when all four candles are burning, we know that Christmas is almost here. We also have a plate full of chocolate, cookies and mandarins.

Dear Mum

nuriayasmin told me that you agreed that I continue travelling with DuDette and we will both go to her American home to spend Christmas there. I'm very much looking forward to see her mentor again and hope the journey won't last long.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Today is my birthday!!

Thank you, Alex. Your goodies look so good I almost jumped into Lexie's magic transit box to come right over.  But then Squab appeared with a cake, singing Happy Birthday.  :)
