God's own second best country.

I have just returned from a trip to Australia. It's somewhere I have never wanted to visit as I figured there are so many Aussies in London, there must be something wrong with their own country that makes them want to leave it at the first opportunity. Having at first been a bit snooty about "parochial" Aus, it grew and grew on me and the beaches at Jervis Bay are the finest talcum powder white in the world, Robinson Crusoe land. God's own second country (after England, naturally!). There were green and red parrots in the beachside trees, and little grey kangaroos on some of the beaches - exotic or what? And a new drink - lemon, lime and bitters - cool! The beer was pretty bad though, perhaps that's why the locals leave!

Hi Shebah

Was it a very long trip?

Does this mean you are back, back for good?

Hi Dr Jo, Yes, am back, but I find it easier to comment on other folks much cleverer and funnier blogs than actually write stuff myself. So will post the odd item, I think, just to keep my hand in!

You can't get bitters in the average bar in the US. I've asked for a long vodka (angastura bitters, lime, lemonade and gin - spot the erroneous ingredient and win big!) from New York to California with mixed results. The Midwest is a bitters desert. New Orleans was the place with the highest bitters to bars ratio.
