So far I have not encountered any critters that are scary. There are snakes in Australia, and that does scare me a bit. On New Years Eve, some beetle landed on my shirt and I thought I was going to throw up. They also have cicadas, which look like small birds. Nasty.
Apparently there could be snakes when I walk in the long grass down to the river
But for the most part, I've just seen flies. Flies and mosquitoes. I can live with that. Snakes can stay away. I haven't seen any bats, but they do have wombats, which are the size of a fox. I think I might rather get bit by a bat than a snake, as rabies might be better than dealing with venom. Although what do I know?
In other news, another pair of helpers arrived today at the Levey house, Jim and Laura. They are from England, and are on a very long tour. They have already been to Asia and hope to get to Figi and possibly Hawaii after visiting New Zealand. They are very nice!
Today I did some edging and helped Vicky clean their cabin for other guests arriving. We took a ride into the town of Bowral and I got to walk around and explore. It was a beautiful drive, as we went through the village of Kangaroo Valley. I still have not seen any kangaroos, but I'm still hopeful. Because it was rainy and foggy, I could not see the valley very well, but what I did see was stunning. It's going to be hard to leave this area. :(
Until next time...Jamie
