leftovers from summer - venice in august


what is this? or as asian mama says, whaa this? - this my dearest mother, is what london looks like from the inside of a bus, top deck of a double decker bus.

to be honest, this was the first white/european funeral i have ever attended. lots of singing and reading of words (in swedish, might i add) and a long speech courtesy of the widow. and then there was that long awkward dinner filled with vaguely unemotional discussions on how we all know the man. it was a great experience (got to see snow) and i truly wish the whole family all the best.

walked from tottenham court road - oxford circus - piccadilly circus - trafalgar square - and almost westminster, before finding a bus home. LOTSA walking that day and built a serious cake craving. Oh renata, why do we shop so much.

This has been a really long week. Recap:
Saturday - flight from london to istanbul
Sunday - slept in
Monday - flight from istanbul to gothenburg
Tuesday - funeral in sweden
Wednesday - flight back to istanbul
Thursday - slept in, again
(beware, lot's of posts coming soon)

and now i'm sitting at home with hot tea and jaffa cakes-esque cookies, trying to make up for not posting for the last 3 months. OH AND WHY?? WHY AM I WATCHING TODDLERS AND TIARAS. CAN FEEL MY BRAIN CELLS DYING.
