Lewis loves American car registration plates

He particularly like this piece of artwork that he saw in an art gallery in Sausalito which shows a map of the United States of America and it is filled in with the different registration plates: very clever!

As there are 50 different states in America, he didn’t see licence plates for all of them but here are a few that he did see in his photo gallery:

Lewis the Lion threw that photo in for good measure too as he loves the American yellow ‘cabs’, as the Americans call them!
