The Nation’s Capital: Canberra

This past week I visited Canberra as part of my scholarship program, and had the opportunity to meet the American Ambassador to Australia. We also sat in on an incredibly raucous Parliament session, where the two parties insulted each other like schoolboys and some members were ultimately ejected from the floor. If only the American congress operated like that, politics would be a lot more fun.

After being wined and dined for a few days we traveled up to the Blue Mountains for some hiking (and atonement), before heading to Sydney and then back home. I posted some pictures from the weekend on picasa. Check them out here…
