Describing word: interesting.
The roads are all backwards, much like the roads in England. The steering wheel is on the opposite side as well. The car I drove yesterday is a manual. You should know that I've driven a 5-speed twice in my lifetime--when I was 17 years old. Driving on the wrong side of everything, in a 5-speed, proved to be quite the experience; without a doubt: interesting. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, I guess practice will make perfect; or at least I won't suck at it forever.
Here's a bit of an update on life in Australia so far:
- The job that I had, I no longer have. I decided to quit. The cafe itself was alright and even the people working in it were alright. I just felt like the owner was being a bit 'dodgy' **aussie word for sketchy**
- The coffee in Melbourne is delicious. I have a new obsession with Chai Soy Lattes. Never ever did I think to put honey in it; this is a must for anyone who didn't know that the combination of honey and chai is heavenly.
- Living situation: moving to a bigger place soon I hope.
- I also found two volunteer opportunities coming my way. One with a museum and the other with a conservation group over on Ocean Road. I think this will be a great way to get involved and make some friends.
And the job hunt continues.
Peace and Love,
