Teddy going west

Teddy is going on a trip and very excited. He loves travelling and has been looking forward to the trip for a long time. We ate taking pictures on the way. The one below is going the A4 underneath the M4, past the side gate of Gunnersbury Park. This beautiful Park was once owned by the Rotshchild family and now is open to the public. Part of the estate became a cemetery long ago. There are lots of Polish graves there and also The Katyn Monument commemorating the Polish officers murdered by the Soviets who for decades blamed the National Germans for that mass murder.
I haven't attended many funerals, but recently I went to say goodbye to a Polish literary lady who wrote a book about all Katyn memorials in the world. Alina Siomkajlo PhD devoted her life to Polish literature. I wish I had got to know her better...
