Debut fevrier j'ai commence une activite qui me tenait a coeur depuis le debut de mon arrivee a Perth mais que je n'avais jamais concretiser pour cause de manque de transport. Mais des que j'ai demenage un peu plus loin de la ville, je n'avais plus d'excuses ! J'ai donc trouve un refuge animalier (animaux natives de l'Australie de l'Ouest) ou j'etais benevole pendant une apres midi par semaine. (Je ne pouvais pas faire plus avec mes 7 jours sur 7 de boulot !) C'est un refuge qui recueuille les animaux des environs qui ont ete retrouves blesses ou qui ont besoin temporairement d'une nouvelle maison avant d'etre relocaliser ailleurs. Malgre le peu de temps que je passais la bas, j'ai decouvert le fonctionnement du refuge et ses petits habitants. Pendant la premiere partie de l'apres ... read more

Friday 4th The flight to Perth goes smoothly and we que up at immigration with some nervousness, we've seen the TV programs on Australian Border Control, however we get in with no problems.

We have arrived! Lachlan, Xavier and Catherine flew into Perth yesterday arriving an hour later than expected but without any hassles. Our first day in Perth - we drove into Perth and had a look around the centre of the city - remarkably similar to Brisbane with Malls and pretty casually dressed people. We visited the WA gallery where we saw a visiting exhibition from the Peggy Guggenheim collection, which for the first time has made its way to the southern hemisphere. Her collection included lots of surrealist works, Picasso, Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock etc. Pretty interesting but perhaps more importantly was the permanent aboriginal art collection - pretty amazing. We then caught a free bus over to Kings Park and walked and walked. The wild flowers are in bloom and the garden is probably at its ... read more
