Tiny Ted in Virginia USA - Howdy Partner!!!

"Hello New Zealand and Wales,

I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to tell you about my adventures with Tiny Ted! Tiny Ted and I had two amazing adventures while he was here in Williamsburg, Virginia. First Tiny Ted helped me give a tour of The College of William and Mary and then we went line dancing!

Tiny Ted helped give a fabulous tour of the College! I even think he helped convince some students to attend! He walked around the entire campus with me two times! Tiny Ted also shared his adventures with the guests of the College and told them about his friends in New Zealand and Wales. They were all very excited to hear about you all and were very honored to meet Tiny Ted. They couldn’t believe he had made it all the way to the States!

Tiny Ted was the best tour guide that day. He stood up in front of over 500 people and introduced himself as a tour guide for the College of William and Mary! He didn’t seem scared to talk in front of all those people and they all clapped for him when he was done. Here is a picture of Tiny Ted with two other tour guides. The stuffed doll was part of another assignment for the student on the left.

After a long day of giving tours Tiny Ted and I rested for a couple of hours, ate dinner, and went line dancing! Since Tiny Ted was in the southern part of the United States I felt it was only necessary that he attend a real country western line dancing club. He was a little timid at first, but after a couple of dances Tiny Ted was doing the two-step like a pro!

Tiny Ted is continuing his 'World Tour' our geocaching friend has travelled from New Zealand to Virginia in America where he is visiting a group of trainee teachers who are determined to give him a good time and some new experiences.

A cowboy spotted Tiny Ted and they began talking about his adventures around the world. Tiny Ted told the cowboy about his friends in Wales and his friends in New Zealand. Then the cowboy talked to Tiny Ted about line dancing and wearing cowboy boots and hats. The cowboy explained to Tiny Ted that line dancing was a tradition in the southern part of the United States, specifically in Texas. Here’s a picture of Tiny Ted and his cowboy friend.

Unfortunately those are all the adventures I was able to take with Tiny Ted. Thank you so much for letting me spend time with him! I can’t wait to hear about his future journeys around the world!

Thanks very much to Katie A for posting these photos and telling us all about Tiny Ted's adventures in Virginia, USA.
