Visit to Britain 2012, day 22: Family reunion

On Saturday 21st of July, we met up with Esther’s family in Wrexham. Her parents and her 3 sisters and their families were present. There were 17 of us, including the babies. It was a lovely day. We had lunch at one of her sisters’ place and relaxed in the garden. In the afternoon, we celebrated Jean-Baptiste’s birthday which happened to be on the same day.

Blaenau Ffestiniog Railway

Friday was a day off. We took the opportunity to have a ride on Blaenau Ffestiniog Railway. After the train trip, we went to visit the slate mine in Blaenau Ffestiniog. The staff was quite thrilled we spoke Welsh. On the first part of the visit, our guide did everything in English for the other people in the group and Welsh for us (the children don’t speak English). He wore a badge from Cymdeithas yr Iaith.
