Sydney to LA to Merryland

Time to start the journey home

overcast 21 °C

I eave for the airport soon to travel home. I have a 2:10 pm Aussie time flight back to LA. Four hour layover in LA and then traveling back to Dulles.

A nice holiday; a great experience. Learned a few Aussie terms I can't wait to use.. but I already know people will get annoyed... LOL oh well, I am going to try them anyway a bit. :)

I forget to mention that per the one guy I was chatting with on the airplane is that Tea is not to be made with just "hot" water; but you need to boil the water to make a proper tea. Looking forward to cuppa opportunities back home. There are electric waterpots everywhere here.. may have to get one for work.... LOL

Also the great "tiolet" myth buster....... Was curious if the water swirled the opposite direction in the Land Under. Lots of observations and in my unscientific opinion I did not see any swirling but straight on water flushing down the pipe..

See ya all soon when I get back!

Oh another tidbit.. to experience some aussie life back home... The Melbourne Cup Horse Race Australia is coming up... Apparently everyone stops what they are doing when the race starts and watches... The Celebration That Stops a Nation...
