The travel journal from the Koshocks was the best idea/gift ever. I'm not sure how but it turned educational about all sort of things- not "how to make love" ....it has become this little spot for doodles, notes and quotes...the best quotes so far:
"you guys, let's stand over here so we can be ourselves..."- reasons not to be near a crowd- Jorge.
"Is that where people make phone calls?" Lyra, upon seeing a phone booth and phones with cords for the first time in her life.
"well, yes, and the place where super heroes change into their costumes." - Lucy
"look out Dr. Pepper, I am coming for you." -Jack, realizing vacation = sugar drink magic, and we all decided this would also be something Gene from Bob's Burgers would say.
"so travel is about time...and waiting, lots of waiting." -Lyra, on the work of getting anywhere awesome.
"in our country..." - a new phrase added to our conversation, the world is BIGGER than RVA for us now.
"I thought the palace would be ummmm, a little more palatial?....I agree, it could use more." -Jorge and Josiah about Buckingham Palace. "you guys, do you see the GOLD everywhere?! -patience
"I think this is crazy, a tourist trap and who needs a house this big?" - Jack about Buckingham- these are the hilarious responses/pitfalls of life changes (i.e. getting rid of 1/2 of all you own)... look for Jack on a motorcycle in Shoreditch next week.
......part 2 coming soon- Hackney and magical food!!
