It sure seems quiet back here in Australia! Only a few cars in the distance, a couple of birds in the trees, one or two lawnmowers in the nearby gardens.

Walking over to the shops this morning I was struck by just how empty it all felt, the streets felt deserted, the aisles of the supermarkets all looked wrong after two weeks of tiny Vietnamese shops. Very disturbing, it must be incredible to live there, grow up there, then come to Australia.
