After morning tea, it was back to the house for a short while for lunch. In the afternoon, my host family took me on a drive, this time it was inland. We drove for 15 km until we reached a small, crafty town called Bruthen where we stopped at a newly opened microbrewery for a sampling of some local beers. I was very impressed with the pilsner! We sipped on small samples of beer looking out over the country listening to a local group sing Paul Kelly songs. It couldn't have been a better way to end the weekend!
I'm off to bed tonight thinking about the months to come and how fortunate I am to be in Australia. I have been looking forward to this opportunity for a long time and it is finally here. Tomorrow, I meet with the new faculty and will be participating in an orientation. School starts officially on wednesday. My true adventure is about to start.
