Today we are time traveling to a trip we took to Canberra last year. For those of you who don't know, Canberra is the capital of Australia, and therefore home to many politicians and public servants. I'd been there before, once to get my visa to work in the UK, and another time for work. My initial impressions: Sheep on the runway at the airport. Many, many roundabouts. Manicured lawns. Boring.
We decided to go back for a visit, and were very pleasantly surprised,
there were lots of things to see and do, and a huge selection of
galleries, archives and parks. We had a lovely time. Here's some
pictures from the National Gallery. (Only outside, we
managed to get into an altercation with staff trying to take pictures
inside (no flash or anything). This was weird to us as we'd taken
pictures everywhere in Europe... including in The Louvre... of the Mona
Lisa! I mean.. c'mon Aussies... really? Is your art that precious?)
