Kampung Ayer school trip

Linnea had yet another school excursion today! Lucas was slightly jealous, one last week and one this week!
They are talking about "houses" at school, so we went to Kampung Ayer (the Water Village) to look at the houses on stilts, and even visit one of them to have a drink and take some photos. Luckily there were a few more parent helpers this time, because we had to cross one of the wooden walkways without hand rails to get to this house... a bit nerve wracking with 35 3 & 4-year olds...

We also walked from the beautiful Omar Ali Saifuddien mosque in town, down to the waterfront to have ice cream. Quite a hike for the little ones, especially in the blazing heat it was today - but they did sooo well, and really deserved their ice creams in the end!

Because of the little royal class mate, we were followed around by a bunch of photographers, a film crew (for the TV tonight!) and a journalist from the Brunei Times. I got interviewed, so I will have to buy the paper tomorrow I guess! Bless him, they keep those cameras in his face all the time, but he is doing so well the little Prince. I guess he is used to it.

We had a lovely morning, see for yourselves:
