Adapting

Many of you will know that when I went to Canada I regularly wrote 'you know you are in Canada when.' Well, moving back home after living overseas for an extended time means that adjustments have to be made and old things look new. So...

You know you are in Australia when:
  • You use the wiper controls (mounted on the left side of the steering column) to show other drivers which direction you are turning
  • You use the indicator control (found on the right side of the steering column) to put the car into park
  • The price of petrol (not gas) is $1.55 and diesel $1.82. Canadian $1.47 and $1.72 respectively

Blessings to you all

Adrian

I'm sure you'll have it down pat in no time and before you know it you'll be back, trying to remember what you are now trying to forget! Can't remember the dates for your return, we're away a bit in Aug so hoping not to miss you. Let me know if you get a chance. Saw bits of a show the other night on Australia, something about a big annual holiday/parade, was thinking of you. Take care, Karen Kuhl wdk@bmts.com
