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)

The colours are so cheerful! How refreshing to see kids in summer attire as we are still in the depths of winter here.

This is funny. Naisaiku is almost like Finnish. Nainen - a woman. Naispuolinen - female. Naislääkäri - woman doctor.
Naisaiku(inen) would be naisaikuinen - adult woman. :)

Hi Gemma, I too have trouble posting comments to your site, I'm using Internet Explorer on someone else's machine today, and it's working so far, but slow. At home I use Mozilla Firefox and your blog sends it crazy.

Anyway, Very well written NaiSaiKu, I enjoyed reading it!!!
