Wildlife on Campus

"Crikey! Look at these beauties!"

^Here is some nasty turkey buzzard thing, they eat everything... even trash bags.^

^Black Parrots^

I have an American phone number!

"Well that's pretty neato!"

I found out a way to have a phone number from the US and have it ring over here when people call. It actually calls my computer. It's pretty cool, I have a voicemail and everything. Just be sure to check the clock in the upper right-hand corner before you call. :-)

The number is (678) 369-0645

My New Girlfriends

Here is a picture of me and my new girlfriends Colline and Donna. They are the dining hall ladies.

^Colline, Me, and Donna^

Colline says that I am the gypsie of my family because I am the first one to make it down to Australia. This is after I asked her what was for dinner, and without skipping a beat she answers with, "ME!" I just laughed and she took a step back and said in her Australian accent, "Wot? I took a showa!" They are awesome!

Aussie Toilets

"That's not what I expected!"

Here is a video to put to rest any questions of how the toilets flush here in the Land Down Under. You may be surprised.
