and so this is christmas

Another Christmas comes and goes.. this one was quite good. Again, as in the previous three or four years, spent here in the UK with Venezuelan friends in Kent (in a place where the local MP, I'm told, is called Clark. Clark of Kent?) Everything good, Christmas dinner was, as per V'zlan tradition, on Christmas Eve (there was another on Xmas day!) and it was a cultural blend of hallacas, pan de jamón, turkey, the usual roasted veg (parsnips are, as far as I know, unknown in Vz) and a Vz Christmas cake that tasted a lot like Christmas pudding. Main platter here:

Again this year I didn't drive but the journey there and back was far less eventful -no floods this time.

Boxing Day, as usual, was a non-day and involved just the return train journey and vegging in front of the telly re-watching the rest of Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica while idly mucking about on an iPad.

Today, a couple of lessons and.. nothing more. Will have to have a look and see what may be happening out in the world that I might want to see or attend.

Hope you lot had a lovely Christmas.
