Do You Come From a Land Down Under?

Where do you take an Aussie for lunch when she wants to see the best of American culture? Chik-Fil-A.

Our good friend Jane Gibbons-Eyre from Australia is here with us for a few days. She's been educating us on the finer points of Aussie culture. We learned that he Outback Steakhouse isn't very accurate (the menu gave her a good laugh) and that my fake Australian accent is more of a half-baked Monty Pythonesque atrocity.

Anyhow. Jane held true to one stereotype. She did bring us some Vegemite. That stuff tastes like anchovies who lived on the wrong side of the law.

Jane is here on a big US trip. She's going to see parts of the country I've never seen, and I've been in the US my entire life, if you don't count a few hours in a Mexican borer town tourist trap market during a trip to Texas about 15 years ago.

She'll leave GA for Boston, then on to Milwaukee, Chicago, Vegas, The Grand Canyon, and Los Angeles. She will be staying with photographer friends all along the way.

What, I didn't mention that she's a photographer? Yep, she's a super extra good children's photographer. Take a look.

it was hard to follow the experience she had with you, so we had to resort to lighting a snowman on fire just to one up you atlanta folk. and sorry about that long arsed message i left on your voicemail during the jane party. although if you had actually picked up, you would have had to endure talking to me live!
