Greetings from America, #1

November 24th, 2004


Greetings from America (Emerald Hills)
Part the First: Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig [1eng]

Another newsletter short on words, though long on pictures. But first, some important information for everyone:

Tobias Xiao-Shan Lee, Karin Lee-Novák, Paul T.S. Lee
905 Far Creek Way
Emerald Hills, California

+1-650-839-1662 (home)
+1-650-839-1663 (fax)
+1-650-430-4920 (Paul's cell)

Now some pictures.

Of course, the very first thing that Karin wanted to do when we got to California is to have an American hot dog:
Luckily, this hot dog could only be purchased at the Golden Gate Bridge, so we thought we'd check it out, being in the neighborhood and all:

We crossed the bridge, which was so much effort for Tobias that he had to take a nap:
and then have an afternoon snack:

We then went to the beach:
and Tobias got to see the sunset:

We went to visit our friends Jade and Syd (who came to our wedding in Vienna):
when jet-lag finally caught up with Karin:

We also had a visit from Angela and Issac, who did their best to entertain Tobias:

Want more pictures of Tobias? Go to:


So that's all for the words this week. Next issue will have the stories of our trip and arrival. In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving.


Until Next Week
Ta-Ta For Now
-Tobias (being grumpy), Karin (trying to finish dinner) and Paul (trying to finish the newsletter and then cooking for 20)



[1] "Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig": From an English nursery rhyme:

To market, to market to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.

To market, to market, to buy a plum cake;
Home again, home again, market is late.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun;
Home again, home again, market is done.

To market, to market, a gallop a trot,
To buy some meat to put in the pot;
Three pence a quarter, a groat a side,
If it hadn't been killed it must have died.

(From a UK website: Lost Lyrics, History & Origins of Old Nursery Rhymes!)
