The annoying things about driving on the left side of the road
As you all know, Aussies drive on the left side of the road (and say that they’re in fact driving on the right side and everyone else was driving on the wrong side). The weird feeling when being in a car took me a day or two to get used to. It took me a couple of days longer to get accustomed to looking right and then left when crossing a road. Once or twice, I nearly ended up waiting at the wrong bus stop. That might be a bit annoying, but I can live with it. What annoys me most, is another effect of people driving on the wrong side, an effect that is totally unrelated to any means of transportation…

I realize that I’ve been quite lazy when it comes to uploading pictures onto the web site. I do have lots of pics from Sydney and also quite a lot of Canberra and the surroundings. So, tell me what you’re interested in and I’ll upload it.
The two parcels from Austria arrived yesterday- „sain et sauf“ and faster than I had expected. My parents had to declare the contents of the package and wrote it onto the outside–clearly visible to anyone. Seemingly, the customs authorities did not have to open the packages, maybe because of the detailed description, maybe because they x-rayed the parcel. I don’t know.
