Where’s Basil? – Meeting up with his more famous cousin Paddington Bear

Basil met up for a friendly chat with his more famous cousin, Paddington Bear, at Harrison’s Coffee in Spring Street, Paddington, London. 12th January 2022.

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out is a story about a bear in a zoo that puts on a disguise so that he can escape and visit a funfair called Dizzyland. It’s about looking at people in depth and not being afraid because they look different from you. So Basil looks like a man when disguised but is still the same friendly and hero bear in this case once his disguise slips.

The story contains illustrations throughout the text. These are then repeated at the back of the printed book so that younger children can colour them in. One of them can be seen below.

The book is available globally from Amazon in both printed and ebook formats. This is the .co.uk link, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Adventures/dp/1980868859/, and this is for .com, https://www.amazon.com/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Out-ebook/dp/B086DSF5N7/.

Le Barbare, near La cathédrale Notre-Dame de Lausanne, Switzerland

Le Barbare was a great little cafe located on the steps just below the cathedral. Unfortunately, it had to close due to the building needing renovation. The lady running it was probably over retirement age when it closed but she sold as can be seen in the photograph her recipe for a chocolate drink. It’s still possible to buy this chocolate powder mix from Globus and other places. 27th August 2010.

Plastic tat, Paraguay

On the road between Ciudad del Este and Asuncion. A photo from almost 12 years ago so where’s all this plastic tat now? A lot of it is probably polluting the environment in some way.

I took this photo through the coach window which had a film on it of some kind. The bus was taking us to Asuncion. We had just met up with some Paraguayan friends in Foz do Iguazu for a couple of days. 26th November 2009.

Lily’s Tea Garden VI, Shrewsbury, England

The last of my photos of this wonderful riverside cafe taken a number of years ago. Can you imagine a great cafe, no branding, no corporate tax evading organisation? A place of individuality. Unfortunately I think this beautiful cafe overlooking the river is now permanently closed. It was a beautiful spot, very peaceful and relaxing, http://lilysteagarden.blogspot.com/p/home.html. 12th July 2009.
