Went to a 50th birthday party this weekend in the country and believe me - it was everything that one thinks of a typical Australian long weekend.
A traditional Australian barbecue with lots of booze at a farmhouse with a view of rolling dry pastures (seeing Australia is currently in drought) accompanied by European wasps. Yes, there was a nest right next to the house.
"Nothing a little petrol won't solve later," the host reassured me.
Had a good time.
