    Wow! That sounds and looks like it was an amazing trip. I was particularly intrigued by the Blue Mountains. I always think of the wilds of Australia as the Outback, but that was beautifully lush. It looks like you and your students had a wonderful time.

    Oh, did you know that Lily is Australia's orchid.

    Wonderful trip, Bruce and Louis! Thanks for taking us along. It sounds and looks like you had an outstanding once in a lifetime trip in a beyond the imagination place. Your tale and pics really grabbed me and I bet your students were astounded at the beauty of Austrailia. Darwin and I would love to see PoP's country, too. Thanks for sharing.

    And WELCOME HOME!!!!!!!!!

    BD,
    What a great recap of your trip. I enjoyed it and gave me some ideas on things that I must do when visiting Australia. I hope I can do that trip some day in the near future
    Thanks for taking us with your story

    Bruce,

    I really enjoyed reading your journal, and what a great trip that was. Thank you for sharing.

    Your students are lucky to have you for a teacher.
