Just some observations

-My watch doesn't know what a leap year is.

-Pandora.com is not available in Australia. Those of you who know what that is, you can understand how crushed and heartbroken I am. Those of you who don't know what that is, go find out. It's amazing.

-Ants here don't form neat, single-file lines. They run around all over the place in a big mob, no order at all.

-People in Townsville are actually not as friendly as those is Sydney. This surprises me, I figured a small town would have even friendlier people. They aren't noticeably UNfriendly, but they don't make me feel warm and special the way Sydneyers did.

-However, the people in Townsville WILL give you directions... even if they don't know where something is. If you ask them, "Excuse me, do you know how I can get to such and such a place?" they won't say "No, sorry I don't know," they will give you directions that perfectly contradict the previous guide's advice.

That's all for now. More to come in the future, I'm sure.
