To rent a property, you usually find it in an advertisement (I always use realestate.com.au), and there is a 15-minute time slot to view to place with everybody else who is interested. If you like it, then you grab and submit an application. We viewed another place just north of the city yesterday with dozens of other interested parties, so we'll just have to cross our fingers again. Really, though, this should not be that difficult! There are just not enough places to rent. We're going to be "homeless" in two weeks, so we're under a lot of pressure right now!
I am very proud of last night's dinner/today's lunch, though. I made an almond, green bean and quinoa salad using this recipe.
Also, somebody sent me this link today to flooding pictures. It's similar to the before/after pics that I posted last time, but these are even better. Take a look if you can! It will give you an idea of the monstrosity of the situation.
I can't believe that there is now terrible flooding in three of Australia's states. Some of the roads are cut off in between Adelaide and Melbourne. As a matter of fact, one of the cities-Horsham- that we passed on the way to the Grampians in nearly under water. Al's parents just stayed there overnight on the way back from Christmas in Melbourne. Yikes! It's just one of those things that hits a little closer to home. Stay strong, Australia!
