AN ADAPTATION OF CLASSIC FAIRY TALES

oday Google welcomes us with the image of some classic fairy tales we may have read some time in our lives, while paying a tiny homage to some authors like Charles Perrault, author of some works like Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty or Red Riding Hood. Precisely it coincides with my students of ESO 3 drafting their first digital books on an adapted version of these classics.

They've enjoyed the process and the outcome, too. I hope you do it as well.

Once again, learning can really happen.

Can you see my new header? Well, this is not my job but a especial student's gift. Today I can say I feel quite lucky not just because a student has deliberately thought of designing such a marvelous header for me, but because I have had the privilege of being her teacher for a complete academic course.

Mind you, honey, adults have a lot to learn from youngsters like you. This is my brief homage through a shortened poem which bears your name...

It was many and many a year ago, 
In a kingdom by the sea, 
That a maiden there lived whom you may know, 
By the name of Annabel Lee; 
And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
Than to love and be loved by me.
[...]

by Edgar Allan Poe

 And as you risked when choosing a header fitting my personality, now I will take the liberty of choosing a picture which represents the way my eyes see you...


Hope you like it...

The Ceremony of the Keys in London


Guard:      Halt! Who goes there?
Chief Yeoman Warder: The Keys.
Guard:      Whose Keys?
Chief Yeoman Warder: Queen Elizabeth’s Keys.
Guard:  Pass Queen Elizabeth’s Keys. All’s well.

You may be asking yourself what this dialogue means or who says it. Well, they are the words uttered by some of Queen Elizabeth's Yeoman Warders during the celebration of the Ceremony of the Keys.

If you are interested in attending the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower, remember to book with enough time before your visit since it is usually booked. Moreover, getting one ticket for the Ceremony entails a long way process which I will try to summarise with the following info I filled in while applying for a couple of tickets for me...

1) A letter addressed to the Ceremony of the Keys office.
2) Inside the letter, attach two international reply coupons and an envelope with your name written on it.
   
      Then, if admitted, you will receive as many invitations as you asked for and from then on, you just have to be worried about enjoying yourself. Let's do some time travel...
