Gypsy travellers in Western Australia

***For those who have been giving me comments and mails, I will get back to all of you when the internet access has become better and especially when I have worked out how I can type Japanese. Please do be patient to me.***

Please bear with this in English and without photos for some more time.... Sorry.

We have been travelling through South Eastern part of Western Australia, which can be the size of Shikoku, while it is a peanut compared to the whole country. Anyway, we flew into Perth, and then
- drove down to Busselton, stayed there two nights,
- down to Pemberton, and stayed another two nights there,
- then to Wolpole for a night,
- ohh, forgot the name of the place...., anyway, between Wolpole and Bunbury a night,
- now in the vicinity of Bunbury.
I feel like a Gypsy. Next time, I definitely want to stay more days in the same place!

Some other points of interest in Western Australia as follow:

1. Telecentre
In rural areas of small population like 1000 or so, there scatters a "Telecentre, " where internet access, copy machine etc. are available, while of course you have to pay. Wireless LAN does not seem to have become standard at all yet.

2. Yellowish water
In forest areas the colour of water is yellowish. First wondered because of the iron but it has turned out to be because of tannin in plants.

3. Inadequate road signs
From the eyes of my husband has been used to driving in UK, road signs in Western Australia is very unkind. We made wrong turns so many times.

4. West Australian gardens
Seems they have worked out how to do the gardens beautifully without too much water.

5. Tall tall aerials
Upon each house there is a very tall TV aerials. Photo will be shown later.

6. Aromatherapy everywhere
Maybe it is a global trend, but in Western Australia, at every, literally, every travel information centre, tea shop and souvenir shop etc., aroma oils, aroma soaps are being sold. Have bought emu oil and tried on the stiff shoulder. It does work!

7. The word "Adult"
They call the accommodation which does not take children "for adults only" or "adult accommodation." which sounds very odd to me, and also to my English husband. To me "adult accommodation" is love hotel....

Anyway, adult only accommodation here is very comfortable and relaxing!

8. B&B
Is B&B an invention of UK? They do B&B here in Western Australia, which has been very convenient to us; we have been staying mainly at B&B's, with occasional farm stay, motel. What other countries have B&B's???

9. What is Dingo???
From pictures, dingos lookd exactly like Shiba dogs. What are they?!? Need to get to know more about them when I get back.

Last night and tonight, we are staying at a farm near Bunbury, a rather big town for Western Australia. The owner is a farmer, his wife seeming to be a part-time nurse. The land is huge, and they have a large number of cattle, several very friendly horses, and in their premises appear lots of wild animals including "millions of (according to the wife)" kangaroos. Just so outlandish to me....

How should I feel when we are back in the metropolitan Tokyo the day after?!?!?
