Tommy’s Penpals: Great Britain

london12Hello everyone! I am very excited to introduce my friend, Lane Devereaux. He lives in Ruthin Castle, Wales. Wales is a country that is a part of the United Kingdom and the island of Great Britain. Wales is right next to England, which is where these photographs are from. Well, I have been writing to Lane for awhile, and I thought it might be fun to share one of his latest letters. Enjoy! unitedkingdom

Dear Tommy,

Hello from the United Kingdom! In your last letter, you told me how rainy it has been in Durham, North Carolina, and I wanted to share that it is always rainy here. Unlike your typical sunny and hot days, we usually have very cool and rainy days. For example, today was only 65 degrees Fahrenheit and very rainy. But I love it!

london1This weekend I traveled to London to visit my friend, Paddington Bear. We had lovely brunch of my favorite food:”toad in a hole”. Since I’m guessing you’ve never heard of that, I’ll share a photo:


Doesn’t it look just delicious? We cooked our meal together, since that is one of our favorite things to do. We also love to ride our bicycles, so we rode around some beautiful castles nearby. Lots of people ride their bicycles in London to help get from one place to another even faster than walking. We also castletake the Tube, which is the subway system. It’s best not to have a car in London when you’re visiting, since the public transportation is just so easy!

Paddington and I enjoyed shopping and walking around town. Next time, I think we’ll go cave hunting. Doesn’t that sound like a fun adventure?

I look forward to seeing what you’re up to and where you have been traveling.

Lots of love,
