Why We’re “The Bush Capital”…

This is not brilliant photography, but it was taken on the way home this afternoon. You can’t see, but there’re suburbs all around us – our place is just on the left. You can see one office building up ahead.

(Sad, but) we passed dead kangaroos on the side of the road. There’re kangaroos everywhere here.

THIS is why Canberra earned its nickname. And – as much as the hay fever annoys me! – I couldn’t imagine living in a city without nature everywhere.

Ukraine is not Russia!

Here is a picture of us protesting at the Russian embassy in Canberra, Australia just after Russia invaded Crimea. In this picture you can see me, my two Ukrainian aunts and my (over ninety) grandmother. Beside me (but you can’t see) is a group of Crimean Tatars, protesting that Crimea is Ukraine, not Russia.

Canberra sunset this evening…

Not as spectacular as Canberra sunsets usually are, but very pretty all the same!

Crimson rosella in Canberra

We have crimson rosellas everywhere in Canberra, but this one hung around for ages, singing at us on Friday evening. It was too cloudy to see the brilliant colours properly, but they’re gorgeous creatures.

Canberra on the Weekend

Driving up to Parliament House on Saturday. Not the best shot, but we were in a moving car!
