Australian Cultural Primer


This is very worthwhile reading if you are interested in Aussie Culture.

An Australian from Perth living in America. Read and digest this, take a few elocution lessons, watch Crocodile Dundee, get a fake tan, some thongs, a beer and a barbie and you could pass as an Aussie (Mate!).

Doesn't it make you proud to be an Aussie?

It does It does. I am becoming more Aussie by the day.

Well I enjoyed that although I did not watch all the videos. That would take forever. I see the swearing seems to have changed since I left, it was all bloody and bugger then, never the f word.

I would say that the f word is not well used in common conversation. The b words, my kids use from hearing other people (my wife). Naughty naughty.

Interesting reading in that article. I didn't learn anything I didn't already know, but it was very well done. Maybe it will encourage more Americans to holiday out here and to see the parts of Australia west of the Blue Mountains. Heck maybe even some Aussies will decide to trek across the Nullabor and see the west. Possibly even discover Adelaide on their way to and from.
