Happy Straya Day, mate!

I guess I could get all patriotic and poetic about how great Australia is, but we all know that. One thing that I do take for granted and only get reminded of it occasionally, is how efficient our country is at doing things … well, most things.

Happy Australia Day, wherever you are in the world, and whether you celebrate it or not. If you have even just visited our beautiful country, you are one of us! Here are a couple of Australian things that have amused me recently.

    I’d be lost without the musical interludes!

    1. Thanks Char, I’d hoped to add some more music as we went along, but our internet access is very limited and a bit slow at the moment. I’ll try to add more when we’re back in SA … the other SA.

  3. The Baikal is frozen over. good that you are seeing plenty of wild life one hears so much about poaching perhaps it is not so bad after all fans e getting ya banana pinched it was not a beach day aussie day .

    1. We’ve been very lucky to see so much wildlife in Botswana. So far here the poaching isn’t a huge issue, but in other countries the only way to keep the wildlife safe is to put them in reserves
