In Canberra, capital of Oz, I gave a talk at ANU for an enthusiastic Geological Society of Australia ACT division group.

Although the visit was brief, I toured the Australian National Museum, the National Gallery, and the Royal botanical gardens, where large lizards (2 ft) watched us go by.

The Aussies keep saying to me: “You haven’t seen a roo yet? They’re all over the place!”
