Dora de Rossi
Hi! I’m Dora. I’m Carly’s best friend.
I’m a city girl, and I’m used to modern conveniences. Visiting the past can sometimes be a bit of a shock. Like the time I nearly had to milk a cow (luckily I got out of that).
What I like about the past is learning about history – I’m actually pretty interested in history. I just don’t really want to live there. I’d rather have electric lighting, buses, antibiotics and refrigeration, thanks very much.
