tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag... or the best 50 cents I ever spent

Though her words are simple and few
Listen, listen, she's calling to you
"Feed the birds, tuppence a bag
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag"

Tell me you remember that song from Mary Poppins

These were all taken by a friend of mine, Lisa, during a sightseeing morning with my mom and aunt. We went up the cable car up to Monserrate, then headed to Plaza Simon Bolivar and the Presidential Palace before a visit to the emerald district in La Candelaria. I rarely hand my camera over to other (cause I'm a control freak), but I'm so glad I did because Lisa did a great job AND I'M ACTUALLY IN SOME PICTURES. I didn't even remember to take the camera out of manual! 

And Andrew? He loooooved feeding the pigeons. I thought he'd freak out with them clamouring all over us, but he couldn't get enough. We'll definitely be taking all three boys back before we leave Colombia.

(If I get around to it, this post will link back to these Wordless Wednesday parties.)

  4. I totally love that song! Those are some great pics and what wonderful memories. I rarely hand my camera over either but I need to do it more often just so I can prove that I was actually present on most of our adventures.

  6. These pictures are beautiful Amy, but I have to admit they capture exactly what a nightmare would look like to me...I am terrified of birds!
