We recently came into possession of a hand puppet named Rosie. Rosie was made by Kendal, a Girl Scout in Butler, Ohio, USA. Rosie is traveling the world, visiting different people. Melanie received Rosie from Kendal's Aunt Rachel.
Since coming into our lives, Rosie has seen a windmill, been to Sao Paulo, Brazil, gone to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and has been to Brussels Belgium.
Here's what Rosie had to say about her adventure:
Melanie had to go on a quick business trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil, so she let me come along. I spent the night with a colleague of hers, Nancy. Nancy has 2 small children and we really enjoyed playing together. In Brazil they speak Portuguese, but Nancy can speak English too! Here's what she said about my visit:
After that, Melanie and Chris took me to Paris. In Paris everybody must see the Eiffel Tower. We went at night the first time and it was beautiful with all the lights.
The following weekend Melanie and Chris drove to Belgium for a day. We stopped in a small town called Ghent to buy some really hot mustard that is only made there. Then we drove into the Flanders area, which is in southwest Belgium, close to the French border. That part of the country looks a lot like Ohio! There really isn't very much there except for farms. Sprinkled throughout the farm country, though, are small military cemeteries where soldiers from WWI are buried. On the way home we stopped in Brussels to go to an antique show.
Now it's time for me to go visit somebody else. I'm being sent to Melanie's friend, Serena, who lives in Italy!
In addition to the photos of me, there are also some springtime in Amsterdam photos in the album. Have a peek!
