Dear Granny,

September in the Crimea is great! It’s wonderful weather here: warm and sunny! The shy is blue and clear. We went swimming yesterday! I saw many jellyfish. They are lovely. Love,



Hi Alex,

I am in the Crimea. The weather is awful! There was a storm with thunder and lightning yesterday. I can’t see what the place is like. It is so foggy! We don’t swim and stay in the tent most of the time.

I can’t wait to get home.




Hi Ann,

We’re in Egypt. It’s so different from home. We went to the desert yesterday. There, it’s too hot during the day - over 50 degrees above zero. And it is freezing at night. There are no flowers, grass or green leaves. There is only sand everywhere.

We’ve taken lots of photos. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
