Anna's birthday!

Anna turned four on July 3.

Edvard loves his consolation prize.

Pizza party! I make the dough the night before, get the sauce and the toppings ready in the kitchen, and take my trusted pizza oven outside for the quick baking.

We went to Disneyland in Tokyo for three days.

At a Power Rangers show. Edvard is a big fan!

Mamma went to Hong Kong and Shenzhen and bought some pirated Angry Birds toys. Lots of fun!

And every Sunday we're at the Zoo! The one place I will miss in Singapore.

The former strongman has published another book. It is for sale almost everywhere, gas stations, grocery stores and even the Zoo. At most of these places it is the only book for sale. I guess that's the way it is in North Korea, too. :-(

Frank Morgan from Williams College stayed with us for one week. We had lunch with TAN Eng Chye.

One day we ran into Persi Diaconis and his wife and had dinner with them.

At a conference in Norway.

The Workers' Party won Aljunied GRC in the election on May 7! The happiest day of my 22 years in Singapore! One week later the old strongman, Lee Kwan Yew, finally stepped down as minister! There is hope for Singapore!

Some new friends at the Zoo.

Sometimes we go to the Bird Park instead.

I was at a conference at Peking University. Notice how there is no heating and people wear their coats indoors.

Forbiddingly cold city!
