Here is a snapshot of our current visit in Sydney featuring Jacqui's parents. Naturally, I was a bit nervous before meeting them, but as they are such nice people and have made me feel so welcome in their home I had nothing to fear. However, situations like the one described below will always come up at some point. So watch this space as I'm sure there will be more embarrassing moments worthy of being captured in black and white.

Last weekend we drove for 2 days south from Sydney. We stopped halfway in Canberra and went for a visit to parliament and got a sneak peak of the Australian Question Time. One of the ladies of the opposition got expelled for 1.5 hours for insulting the Speaker and there was general shouting and booing every now and again. Entertaining. Then we went on to Melbourne and the house of a friend of Jacqui's from her student days in Paris.
