Guess Where We Are


We have arrived at Red Rock in Australia and are experiencing rain instead of snow, a nice change. Today we ate crocodile and kangaroo with lemon myrtle sauce at the Aboriginal Center which was a great way to celebrate the government saying "Sorry" to the Aboriginals.

We spent Chinese New Year in Hong Kong by watching amazing fireworks along with a hundred thousand other people. I have never been part of such a large crowd but it was very orderly and felt quite safe.



We also saw some dragon dancers there that were very impressive.

So good to hear that you've made it safely! Can't wait to see and hear more from you!

I'd love to tell you that you're missing lovely northern winter weather...but I've never had a very believable poker face. Soak up all of the sunshine (and rain).
