A Weekend in Wales

Rhaedr Waterfall

Lake Vyrnwy

A singing walk

Powys Castle

Some Welsh Cheese and Lebanese Wine

BBC Modern Masters - Picasso

If you are wondering what you’ve just been reading and why, then please consult Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief – in part of this book one of the characters (a fist-fighting Jew) creates his own picture book, which is featured in the text – made of simple sketches, it playfully interrupts the text with childlike pictures that are all the more enjoyable for their technical lack of ability. So I thought I’d have a go.

For a more accurate representation of what I saw in Wales and how beautiful it was there are some photos below.

      Hi Sally,

      Thanks for your comment. I had such a great time in Wales last weekend – thanks for letting me stay! I will have to let you know how I get on with Nigel’s Toast!

    what did you sing on your singing walk?

      Only just seen your comment -the singing was mostly nineties classics including Blur, Pulp and Bluetones. There were some old classics too. And of course Nuala wanted to do some Eminim rapping…
