Yesterday it rained for the first time since I arrived, and the weatherman keeps reminding us that it's winter now. Ha! Winter? This is cold, dark, and dreary?
Everybody (almost) uses the clothesline to dry their clothes since it's so dry and hot here. I think it's really amusing that there's drying racks attached to the side of every cottage and a huge set of them next to the laundry-house (pictured here). Much as I like the idea, I don't think it's always dry enough in the NW to have a permanent set-up.
A few days ago we hiked up a hill in the middle of Clancy's campus. It's one of the larger ones in the area, which is just pitiful. Still, it offered some pretty views (including the first picture in this post). Here I offer you a picture of Wagga Wagga from the Hill and an image from when I was tracking some kangaroos for pictures (they kept just up and around the corner the entire hike):
Tomorrow we're headed for Melbourne, where Sean and I may stay up to a week before heading to Sydney, where we'll stay until returning to CA on the 16th. I am still working on my goals to hold a Koala and eat Kangaroo meat.
