Day 26: Australia Day

I have never been to Australia and I would love to go.

When I think of Australia I think of the fearsome Drop Bear, kangaroos, and the 573 million creatures that might kill me.

Also I think of the aboriginal people, and the culture they’re preserving and losing.

And the beautiful beaches and coral reefs.

And the sunshine.

And the friendly mates.

What does Australia Day prompt for you?

Set a timer for 5 minutes and see what pops out.
