09 Jun 2010 G’Day Mate from Down Under OZ
A day ahead
Because we are across the date line, it is already tomorrow here in Australia. We celebrated my nephew, Zachary’s birthday, and when I called him it was the DAY BEFORE his birthday! We are in winter because we are in the SOUTHERN hemisphere…so to get somewhere warmer here, you drive NORTH!
We also loved St. Kilda where we heard live music a few times. In Brisbane, we stayed one block from the big game…Wallabees v. All Blacks for Rugby. The crowd was amazing and fun. We also went to a jazz club by ferry boat–Big Band!
Thank you for all your emails! We love hearing from everyone. Australia has been a very different part of our adventure. We loved the city of Melbourne and all the museums, restaurants, parks. We learned that the Roman empire was at its height 2000 years ago, the Egyptian pyramids were built 4500 years ago but the Australian Aboriginal heritage dates from 60,000 years ago!
