10 days and counting. I am getting so excited. Been thinking a lot about how this trip is going to be so different from last year's. Am going from the land of G'day mate and ta to Ciao and arrivederci. From being in countries younger than America and colonized by the British, to a land that has been conquered over centuries by Greeks, Turks, Arabs, etc. and the people speak a melodic romance language. From seeing kangaroos, wallabies, emus, cassawarys, crocodiles, Tasmanian devils and koalas to seeing donkeys and chickens. Traveling from a country that is approximately the same size as North America to one closer to Texas in size . Going from a land settled by deported British "criminals" to the home of the Mafia. I can not wait to live the differences. SO.... until about 11 days from now (depending on internet connectivity), I say stay tuned for the further adventures of little old me (and MaryAnn).
