G’day?

Am I allowed to say that? Probably not, especially because I have yet to hear anyone actually use these words, although I have heard many other unique Australianisms (“Fair dinkum” is probably my favorite, although the liberal and senseless use of “heaps” is also pretty fun.)

Anyway, I have been terrible at keeping this blog updated. I could say that this is because I have been toiling in the bush, but my regular Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr updates suggest that this is not, actually the case.

I’ve been in Australia for just over two months. It’s the very beginning of autumn here, and I’ve moved south, from inland Queensland to the city of Sydney. This is a good thing, as it means that I will probably not die of heat exposure (which was a real risk in the Outback, let me tell you).

I’ve posted just under two hundred photos to my Flickr account, and so I will leave you with a few of my favorites (so far).

(Or should I be spelling that ‘favourites,’ now?)
