I had slept blissfully unaware of all this until he told me next morning, but I got a real good laugh then.
I am posting a picture of some fresh road kill that could have given us some good meals late in the trip when the cash was running short, its surprising what one can do when the need is urgent, but fortunately we were not forced into this situation on this trip.
This is not a paid political announcement or a personally held view it is simply an observation of an existing situation that we found impossible not to notice while we were in
HOWEVER we were simply amazed to see the number of Asian people all over
I try very hard not to be racist in my thinking and I bear no malice to any people but I have one small problem with the “Asian” situation and that is that there appears to be NO assimilation into the general community, the Asians only mix with other Asians and speak among themselves in their own dialects wherever they gather, our population is drawn from practically every country on earth, and while there are pockets of other nationalities who choose to segregate themselves, nowhere is there such iron clad boundaries as where the Asian communities are.
I hope that there will be a softening of the borders which will allow some intermingling, as in the main they appear to be a hard working people and will be a valuable asset for
Sydney has a population of over 4 million, I think it is a terrific place to spend a week or so on holiday but with the level of smog, the traffic chaos that seems to exist at all times, the constant jostling on crowded streets, the very expensive cost of living…. I can’t help but wonder why they all choose to live there.
Sure it’s a very attractive city set on one of the worlds best harbour’s, there is an incredible array of shops and services available, an excellent public transport system to move them all about but I wouldn’t choose to live there for anything.
On a lighter, even though a potentially more dangerous note:
We spent a fair bit of time searching for the dreaded Drop Bears that we had tangled with in WA in 2002, while we didn’t actually sight any Drop Bears we found several sites where there was clear evidence of them, some of the photographic proof of their existence is posted here as a worlds first, we were able to ascertain that a Drop Bears diet and… errr-ummm toilet habits, were far more varied than had been previously suspected.
We found no evidence of Hoop Snakes on this trip and can only assume that their chosen terrain is the much drier and warmer North and
Close inspection of this photo will reveal the accumulated “Drop Bear Droppings” at the base of the tree, we (very carefully) inspected the tree to see if there was a Drop Bear in residence, fortunately there was no drop bear there.In this photo some unwary sheep are venturing into the danger zone, as defined by the accumulated Drop Bear Droppings at the base of what is obviously home to a large Drop Bear, or even a colony??
The Drop Bears that live in this grove of trees are obviously very large (based on the size of the droppings) and also very tidy by nature (this time based on the neat rows of droppings)

It's hard to be funny when you have to be clean.
