Happy Australia Day!

January 26, 2012

We were in Wollongong, New South Wales, for Australia Day in 2006, and it remains one of my most vivid memories from our year in Australia. It was a great day — heaps of fun. Amusement park rides and a crafts fair at the waterfront, good food, some interesting entertainment, and then, once the sun went down, a spectacular fireworks display supplemented by fire-eaters and people juggling torches.  It was reminiscent of Fourth of July celebrations here in the States, and yet it was thoroughly Australian and different from anything I’d experienced before.  Wonderful times.

To all of my friends Down Under, Happy Australia Day!  Hope it’s a great one!
