London, Oxford & pandas

PandasketchIt has been a while since my last entry, that is because I did some exciting things. For a short holiday, we visited London and Oxford and it was wonderful. I’m not that much of a people person and especially London is one of the busiest places in the world to visit, but it was such a great experience. The parks, historical buildings and musea where a delight to see.

I insisted on going to Oxford as well, because I love historical places and Oxford has these dreamy towers and the oldest university of Europe. And because it is only an hour by train and the trip also gives a small glimpse of the ever so beautiful British countryside, it was the perfect opportunity to go. Oxford was stunning.

In London we saw these very cute and cheeky park squirrels and of course much more, below are a few pics.

Now, back to panda crochet. I’ve made a rough sketch and already have finished the head. I’m working on the rest of the panda. In the Natural History Museum in London, we saw the stuffed panda Chi Chi, who was a well known giant panda in London Zoo and died in 1972. It was helpful to see a ‘real’ panda.
