Continued Travels

I had so much fun and so much to do this last week! Please forgive my absence. Now, where were we?? Oh, yes . . .

This week I made my way to a very fashionable city to seek out a frienD who used to run his own club at Hogwarts. I found him in the magical library that was shaped like giant books. Thankfully, I had stocked up On crystallized pineapple during the SouTh America trip.

My nExt stop took me to a place that had pyramids of a different kind than those in South America. I had to visit a friend who is an author and beastly anthrOpologist. I'm really and truly hoping that his experiences can help me on my mission.

The one thing that I did not like about my last stop?? There was sand EVERYWHERE! AbsolUtely can't stand the stuff. Gets in your hair, in between your toes, and other places that I will not mention here.

Until next week!

Heading South

Hello, Students!
The northern continents are getting a little too cool for me, so I've headed south! Remember the ghost I spoke about last week? Well, I got the bug to track him down. So, last weekend I headed south for the Dia de Los Muertos. There were lots of ghosts arounD and some of them reminded me of the vampire bats. Fiesty little devils, they are!

Well, I found out that some of the spectators of the festival had been bitten by such bats! The ghosts, of course, kept tabs on who was bitten and they seem to remember who survived the bite. I never did find the ghost I was looking for. But, I digress! I'm supposed to be telling you about my travels.

First, I visited a capital city that was built On a lake, but the lake has since disappeared. Many ghosts meet in the ancient temples and all over the town.

Next, I landed in a city where many kites are built & flown. Very windy place that! The city has old game courts which would have been useful for local Quidditch playoffs.

Then, lastly, I went to a beautiful Northeastern coastal city that is known for its annual multicultural carnival. Ravenclaws would have loved the pink library! The town is smaller than a nearby large city and is very relaxing. There are so many historic places to visit - I hope I get to see them all before I'm off on my next adventure. I'm definiTely going to catch the Friday night serenade before I set off to my next destination.
