There are lots of cool places to visit in England. Miss Elaine's daughter Zoe lives in Cornwall in the far southwest of the country. Did Mrs. Bezdek help you find it on the map? Zoe lives in the town of Penzance. One day we visited the city of Truro, the largest town in the county.
Lots of things in England are the same as here but it's fun looking at the differences. This horse-drawn coach carries tourists but there are modern cars here, too. And you can see a bus in the background.
Although there are cemeteries in England just like ones here, sometimes important people were buried inside churches. Statues on top of tombs are called effigies. I'll probably show you more of these in future posts.
Here's something we saw in several towns -- people dressed as statues. They stand very still but if you wait long enough, you can see a blink or a twitch. Do you see the helmet on the ground? He hopes people will throw money into it. I don't think he will make much money but he really does look like a toy soldier!
This is Mr. Jack. He really didn't want to stand by this sign but Miss Elaine thought it was funny -- so he did it.
