I got to pet this amazing orphan wallaby at Cahunu koala park near Perth in Western Australia.
Here my dad and I are on a new modern dump truck used in the superpit.
This is my prize from the cannon ball challenge in Bruce Rock on Australia Day.
This is me standing on the beach right by our cabin at the RV park.
So far on my trip I haven't had any sicknesses. Altho I did get an infection on the skin of my ear this past week that my mom thought looked really gross. Polysporin did nothing, then again the 50 cent cream we got for the pharmacy worked unbelievably well. We also think that I broke my toe. Other than that nothing bad has happened to me. I hope nothing bad happens to me now. Bye for now (I would say forever but my mom would yell at me if I did).
This is not what I was expecting for lunch today. A chicken with his head and anus still close by. Somewhat odd and also unappetizing. I only ate a little bit of my food before getting grossed out. Bye.
I had to buy new shoes on our trip because my old ones didn't fit anymore. We found "Shoe Street" in Hanoi and I bought some new Nike running shoes.
We thought my friend, Alex Bruce, would like these Spicy Lobster chips that we found.. We also saw Salted Seaweed Pringles.
Here in Hanoi we found lots of little Lego knock-offs to buy. One box with a mini-figure in it was about $1 (at home they're $4). You have to read the labels in the photo. I bought 5 characters, and today I'm going back for more. We can also get characters from the newest Star Wars movie, WWII, and Jurassic Park dinos, including the indominous Rex.
Recognize any of the WWII characters?
Yesterday we went for lunch at Burger King because we were going through American food withdrawal.
We took a boat from the Old City of Hoi An upriver to a little place called "Pottery Village." We saw some dogs, pottery making and pottery drying. The boat was ok, not great and not bad. The village was not very interesting, but I got a whistle made of pottery shaped like a snake.
Yesterday we went out for dinner, and we felt like we were sitting in someone's living room because there were lots of kids and dogs playing and running around inside and out. This dog would always come over to our table, but when I'd stick my hand out, he'd back away. It seems to be pretty common here to have your pet with you at work.
