When you don’t have family, you rely on your friends. We are surprised by the different friends we have amassed while here in Oz. It surprises us every day. I call it the United Nations of Longology. Just kidding, but we really do appreciate the Aussie hospitality we have encountered. Tonight our girl Angie and brother Michel invited us over for dinner. We ended up staying the night, and had great conversation into the weeee hours of saturday morning. It was great looking at old childhood pictures in 35mm! With technology being how it is, it isn’t often that you find yourself going through a photo album any more. Even Diana and my grandparents have digi-photo frames around the house.
Its always interesting to see the cultural dishes a local will come up with and this meal did not disappoint. Fried steak with onions & gravy with au-gratin potatoes… YUM!! Aussie soul food, lol. As per usual, we tried to win over the crowd with our famous guacamole. We enjoyed and kept the conversation going till we fell out! Another good time with good people!
