3 New Aussies


Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

The children are now officially Australian citizens and now we need to find the nearest Centrelink office. (Only kidding) We will be picking up their passports on Monday and then the next stage commences. Due to seating issues with our airline were are unable to fly out of India until the first week in March. We have decided to make the last few days worthwhile and as such we are moving to a new upmarket hotel that adjoins a new shopping mall. Farewell you evil horns and mad drivers. 
Brad keeps on trying to anticipate what course stationary and moving vehicles and like will take as we approach them. We have found that it is best just to keep walking as you can't tell if the car is going to go forward or backward, let alone go the correct way up the street.
