AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I so wish I could go to the advertised Tutankhamun exhibition.
But my broken arm has ruled that out for now!

I'm so sorry your broken arm will keep you away from the King Tut exhibit. What a shame! I've had a couple of broken bones, and I know how much fun it isn't!

I just watched at Discovery channel that they are coming here in US. I forgot what state it was but it's not close here in MI. Great opportunity to see these one of a kind exhibit.

When I was little I was so into Egptian items and thought I wanted to be an archeologist. I would love to go to that exhibit! Hope your arm heals quickly!

Such a great yellow!

Genie said...

Oh, I feel so badly for you. I know I would want to go if the exhibit was within driving distance of the house. Hang is there. It is going to get better. Nurse it along and you will be back to normal before you know it. Hugs....Genie

I hope you are healing well and sorry you had to miss King Tut.
That exhibit has been touring for a while -- I'd like to see it again. We took all 4 of our kids (teenagers then and bored) and only had about six seconds for each display cas, there were so many crowds. I'd like to try again with just us.
