The children in the street gathered round me, they asked me different questions about london. They asked me if I liked strawberries and I told them I never had one and didn`t know what they were. So they told me to go to the end house at the bottom of the street because the garden was full of strawberries. "You can go and pick them if you want" they said. I climbed over and did that. The dog came running out the house with a policeman. It was his house, so I got punished.
