Where is Winnie????

This week I made my way to a very fashionable city to seek out a frienD who used to run his own club at Hogwarts.

That sounds like Horace Slughorn who ran The Slug Club back in the day.

I found him in the magical library that was shaped like giant books. Thankfully, I had stocked up On crystallized pineapple during the SouTh America trip.

My nExt stop took me to a place that had pyramids of a different kind than those in South America. I had to visit a friend who is an author and beastly anthrOpologist. I'm really and truly hoping that his experiences can help me on my mission.

The Pyramids at Giza, Egypt
The one thing that I did not like about my last stop?? There was sand EVERYWHERE! AbsolUtely can't stand the stuff. Gets in your hair, in between your toes, and other places that I will not mention here.

Until next week!

The Physics of Nascar


So this would be a really good book for me to have. Maybe one day I might convince Mum to get it for me. She thinks I am pretty odd for my fascination with muggle car racing anyway.

Where is Winnie????

First, I visited a capital city that was built On a lake, but the lake has since disappeared. Many ghosts meet in the ancient temples and all over the town.

The first city that popped in my head was Mexico City. The city primarily rests on what was Lake Texcoco.

Next, I landed in a city where many kites are built & flown. Very windy place that! The city has old game courts which would have been useful for local Quidditch playoffs.

I'm not really sure about this but I've seen guesses that include Puente Alto, Chile. Apparently they have fighter kites and it is very popular to fly kites during Independence Day in Chile.

Then, lastly, I went to a beautiful Northeastern coastal city that is known for its annual multicultural carnival. Ravenclaws would have loved the pink library! The town is smaller than a nearby large city and is very relaxing. There are so many historic places to visit - I hope I get to see them all before I'm off on my next adventure. I'm definiTely going to catch the Friday night serenade before I set off to my next destination.

Another one where I don't have a clue but I saw this pink library on another blog that said it was Olinda, Brazil. Olinda is located on the northeastern coast of Brazil and they do have a carnival there.
