Before I start my post, I want to thank everybody who has been reading! Since I moved to Weebly on Saturday, I've had over 96 page views. I was expecting something like 5, so this higher number makes me very happy! Please continue reading my blog, and feel free to comment or ask me questions.
In other news, I have heard two separate traffic reports in the past week about kangaroos hopping around the roads and blocking morning traffic for commuters. I love Australia.
This morning, I found a most welcomed visitor in our apartment (it wasn't a kangaroo, sadly). I noticed it as I walked towards the closed bathroom door and thought to myself I swear I turned off the bathroom light last night! As a matter of fact, it wasn't the light but actual sunlight beaming through the window. Absolutely shocking! Most of August and September have been cold (highs of about 55 degrees during the day, which is cold here), dark and rainy. The rainfall here has broken records. There was a two week period where it poured down non-stop, all day and all night. For Adelaide, that is unheard of. The climate here is arid and dry, so it usually just sprinkles a little bit when it rains. We're all ready for it to be hot and sunny- as it should be in Australia!
Before I go, I want you all to know that I'm going to start recapping exciting events that I've experienced since I moved to Australia. Here's an idea of what you will see:
For those of you who have never been to (or don't know very much about) this wonderful country, you can also expect more facts from me in the future. Bye for now!
