Foreigners and friends — 2 Comments

  1. True that . . more similar than different we are! Many of us even sound like Londoners and none of us are averse to the odd Barbie invite!

  2. Aussies seem to congregate in unlikely places! I remember being in a little town in Austria a few years ago, Saint Johann in Tirol, and there being Australia Day celebrations in one of the bars.
    Another year, at Zell, my Austrian ski instructor was shouting to one of his colleagues.

    “Because he’s Australian. Hey! Cobber!”
