1st tooth

We noticed Alex's first tooth, a lower incisor, on Sunday. No associated drama, despite all the stories. It's very cute!

The Burning Gates

At Derweze (Darvaza), in Turkmenistan, there is a 60m in diameter crater filled with the flames of burning gas since a Soviet drilling rig collapsed into it in the 1950's.

There are some awesome photographs and videos of this doorway to Hell.

Baby swims

Took Alex for his first swimming "lesson" in the local pool on Saturday. It's not really swimming, just familiarising the children with water, playing games and singing nursery rhymes. Alex took to it like a fish to water, kicking his legs as he has done since before he was born. Exhausted him though, and the poor kid had to meet the cousins for a Malaysian lunch at Abang Sam in Kensington.

He's so much fun. I dread returning to work on Monday as it means being away from the family. Weekends are wonderful for the time spent together.
