London: Aspley House

After the stroll in the Hyde Park, we went to Park Lane where is located Aspley House, the First Duke Wellington's house.

In the subway passage in front of the Palace, we found references about his military campaigns in Portugal...

and about the exquisite Silver Portuguese Service of the palace...

I didn't visit the house because I would need to arrive earlier to do a proper visit. Next time, ok? ;-)

I leave you with Stephen Fry, as Duke of Wellingthon, in a Blackadder episode ;-) Enjoy!

Oh Sandra, that would be a dream to see all of what you mentioned, and to HEAR your beautiful accent! AND YES, LIPSTICK AND DAY CREAM are all I need! IF I go out and get really dressed up, then mascara and maybe some kohl eye shadow, but during the rest of the time, a natural and fresh look is best!

OHHHH, I so wish I could fly to NL NOW!!! HAPPY WINTER DEAREST! Anita
