Default For all of you awaiting those visas!!

In case you haven't read the IanCurtis thread entitled "Hells bells"...

Thought you might find these sites amusing enough to take your minds off (for a little while anyway) the tedious waiting...

And for what Aussies think of life in England:

I loved the links, Sophia. But the Barbie part on Australian Beers was appaling. I am one of those obsessed with cleanliness. The thought of eating barbeque cooked on a rusty and dirty grill, of meats with different cooking times and vegetables all mixed together to breed bacteria, and to see people tipping beer on the meat (maybe beer they drank already? it wasn't clear, but eeeew anyway) just repulsed me.

If I ever get invited to a barbie I'll have to pretend to be vegetarian.

Hi guys

Col, glad you enjoyed them, I was holding my sides laughing at them too!!

Lana, I wouldn't take it too seriously, I think it's meant to be a comical view on how it's really done...and even if it isn't, I guess we'll all just have to get used to it!!!

love sophia x

Thanks Sophia... actually I don't care as long as I am not the one eating, ha ha. The pictures were a bit much though.

Lana,
Dont worry too much, I'm sure not all barbi's are like the one in the photo, they get so hot that I'm sure any germs would be killed. We personally can't wait to have our first barbi when we get out there.
Regards Darren & Julie
ps cool sites,

Thanks Dazz.

But considering that we are thinking Melbourne, I don't think they have barbies in that miserable weather, hee hee.
