One of the joys of parenting is that you can experience things through the lens of your children. In traveling, Bobby and I have both enjoyed teaching and explaining what we are seeing/experiencing with our kids. Your initial reaction might be that our kids are too young to require good explanations for things, but both kids are like a sponge and soak up whatever information we give them. Amelie asks a thousand questions every day, all day, so it is nice that we have new things we can be talking about. ;)
As I mentioned in the previous post, we loved sharing with them a city on water. Cars were now boats, houses were on stilts, bridges were crosswalks, etc. Prior to arriving Amelie's most pressing question was how is there an airport if the city is on water?! I put the exclamation because she was very emphatic in asking this question.
Below are some pictures of what we saw around the city. If you have small kids, they will probably enjoy seeing these boats. ;)
