They say it's when life begins.. at 40's ;-)
I wanted to start this decade with the beginning of a beautiful friendship. :-)
And I did, not when Just a Plane Ride Away like in Casablanca, but with Just a Plane Ride Away... like Yaz ;-)
Yaz is living in London and I wanted to go there for my 40's.
We decided to meet each other in front of Sherlock Holmes house ;-)
After so many and funny talks in FB and specially in our own blogs and mails, it was very nice, finally, to meet Yaz :-)
So, here I was, in a new city, ready to share an old passion with a new friend :-)
She gave me the most warm, cosy and welcoming hugs :-) I will never forget it...
Inside of the house, Dr Watson was expecting us. ;-)
I introduced myself and my friends. A very nice talk began. What a charming man!
I said I was from Portugal and why I was in London: to see The Phantom of the Opera and to listen to the beautiful voice of Sofia Escobar.
During our conversation, I became astonished with his detailed knowledge about Portugal. He knew about the difference between Fado of Lisboa and Fado of Coimbra and the cruises in Douro river, for example.
And no, he didn't mention Salazar, our former dictator, as usually happens when I say I'm Portuguese! Great Dr Watson! Goed zo!
Afterwards, I asked for Sherlock Holmes. I haven't seen him yet and I thought maybe he was having problems with Professor Moriarty ;-)
Sherlock Holmes doesn't like unexpected visits specially when he is concentrated on his chemistry experiments...;-)
"Maybe it's better this way, to do the visit without him around."...I thought...
Mrs Hudson was not there too, so we did the visit by ourselves.
Look at this beautiful table...
or at this desk...:-)
Sherlock Holmes continues to receive many letters...
Look at this one, for example...
In Sherlock Holmes house, we can also enjoy scenes of his famous adventures like, for example, A Scandal in Bohemia (1891).
We enjoyed this visit very much as well as our typical British lunch with Fish and Chips in a pub close by. :-)
Thank you, my dear! Just love the mug you gave me!

Now, thanks to you, I will have forever and ever my five o'clock tea with Sherlock Holmes ;-) Kusjes, mijn lieve Yaz! :-)
