I love 'OZ -- and distance between us is almost the maximum distance that it's possible to be on Planet Earth.
Great people, good beer (generally), great fun -- and they aren't afraid to express their opinions either -- at least in their parliament the MP's REALLY show what they think of each other -- some of their "debates" make a typical Bar Brawl seem like a Sunday School sermon. !!!
I've always had a good time down under and it's really hard getting on the plane again to leave.
If there's one around and you want opinions on things then ask an 'Aussie -- they usually don't tolerate any form of B/S in my opinion. Good for them.
G'Day Mates. !!!
