London in Summer - What Every Teacher Wants

There's a heat wave in London right now, and I haven't seen so many of our teachers blogging about the climate since the Iceland Volcano erupted.

Here are some of my personal faves this week:

Teaching in London - Trish talks about her journey to Hamstead Heath.  Be sure the read the next post about the British terms she now uses every day - good clean fun.

Get an Eyepatch, Man - Amie shares photos from her day in the sun with a bottle of vino.  I always love how Canadians turn European so quickly when it comes to picnics with wine outdoors, which is unacceptable in Canada but perfectly normal in Europe.

City of London - a new Canadian teacher in London who hails all the way from Newfoundland.  This blogger shares her pictures of Regents Park (just down the street from our accommodations) and stories of what a supply teacher does when she doesn't get called in for work.

Just Take Me Where I've Never Been Before - Erika shares photos of Hampton Court Palace and tells of her farmers tan & adventures in sunburning in London's heat wave.  I enjoyed her description of the "stink-hot tube," which is the London subway system that could learn a thing or two from Toronto's climate controlled underground.

If you want to see more of our teachers blogs just check out the right hand side of this blog & scroll down to "Our Teachers Blogs".  I try to link to all of them when I can, so please do visit them & leave comments so they know you've popped by. Bloggers always love to read comments from their readers, myself included.
