Hi Mama!

We took a morning constitutional (no pun intended! ;)) around the park and stopped at the Capitol Building to pose for a photo. 

:)

Hola Mama!

We spent a fine afternoon along the waterfront.  :)

This is the Sacramento River, which runs from the top of California down by Sacramento to the San Francisco Bay Area and the Pacific Ocean.

We said goodbye to Cheerio and TV-TV today.  We'll especially miss that quacking!  I had such a good time on Madeline Island with Cheerio, and she was with me when I became Voyager of the Week.  I will be voyaging onwards too soon, so maybe our paths will cross again some day.  :rolleyes:

A pretty day in the city, no?
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3447.jpg


We were getting a bit peckish as we headed south of San Francisco.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3448.jpg


So we pulled over at a rest stop and shared a banana.

Stanford, California, USA - 2nd September 2011

By: kcrawfish

Mama,

We left the highway finally.  Are we going here?  Miss Kate said, no, itís the linear accelerator where things go very very fast.  Weíre pretty much slow pokes, and it sounds dangerous besides.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3453.jpg


Finally, Mama!  Weíre at Stanford University, but Miss Kate promised not to leave us here for a semester Ö just for an hour.  Still, I can say, I went to Stanford, canít I?  ;)
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3454.jpg
Oh, did I tell you about our new friend?  Sheís from a small town near Milan in Italy.  I asked her if she knew my next host, but she doesnít.  Oh, well!  :p
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3456.jpg


We found interesting things on this campus from TV-sized parking spaces to totem poles.

Saratoga, California, USA - 2nd September 2011

By: kcrawfish

Hi again Mama!

Okay, we had a dinner date so we drove on Campus and Palm Drives through Stanford, then on University Avenue through Palo Alto and then down to Saratoga in the South San Francisco Bay where we had a more satisfying meal than hummus chips!  ;)

Pleasanton, California, USA - 3rd September 2011

By: kcrawfish

Hola again Mama!

We woke up early, had a quick dip in the hot tub and were off for some culture, as we did education yesterday.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3483.jpg

http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3486.jpg

The culture is Scottish!  We were at such a big fair!  Itís called the Scottish Highland Games and itís in Pleasanton, California. 
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3487.jpg

We ate lunch and listened to a great band, Golden Bough.

I enjoy all types of music!  I donít discriminate based on size!  :)
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3491.jpg

And there was lots more to see.

http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3495.jpg

This is hammer tossing.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3496.jpg

This is weight tossing.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3498.jpg

This man was helping her tune her bagpipes.

This is the kind of dancing Miss Kate does.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3508.jpg

We were serenaded by a friend of Miss Kateís, Mary Rose.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3512.jpg

I had a slightly sick feeling in my gut when we stopped to see the birds of prey.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3517.jpg

I wasnít turning my back on this guy.  They call him kestrel.  I call him killer.  :/

http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3524.jpg

Ah, this man was testing gun powder with a big pop and a puff!
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3525.jpg
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3527.jpg

We ended the day with some very mixed emotions.  Miss Kate handed us to a pirate.  Not cool, man.  Not cool.
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3526.jpg

But, all in all, a great day!
We got home and played on a tea towel Miss Kate bought at the hall of souvenirs.  See?  Iím getting on the bus and Dottie Mouse is sitting on the window ledge on the upper deck.  :rolleyes:
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albums/i475/kcrawfish/TV%20-%20Stanford%20and%20Scottish%20HIghland%20Games/IMG_3534.jpg

By: kcrawfish

Dear Mama,

My new host is waiting for me in Italy.  It was time to say goodbye to everyone here and give an especially big hug to Dottie Mouse.  I thanked my host for taking me from Wisconsin to ďScotland.Ē  And Iím sending you my souvenirs, Mama, including a Madeline Island ABC Book bookmark signed by the artist and some green salt water taffy.  I will try not to eat the pistachio taffy before I lick the envelope shut.  ;)

See you from Italy, Mama!  I miss you and hope youíre having a fun time with Timothy III. and Fiona Yenien.  We all so enjoyed looking at their amazing journey through Bolivia.

Love,
Ranil

Milan, Italy - 4th November 2011

By: annix

Hi mum,
at the moment I guess that the weather is much better in Chile than in Italy! Today it rains but we take our umbrella and we visit the Sforzesco Castle which is placed in the center of Milan. It's a Medieval Castle and inside there are museums of paintings, armors, furnitures, Roman, Greek and Egyptian archaeology and so on.
Love,
Ranil

Hi mum,
today I'm to the Bresso airport, a small airport for private planes. I'm thinking to buy my own plane...I think it can be useful for a TV, don't you think so?
