We're here! The flight down went well except for an hour or so delay. We sat next to a veterinarian who was very interesting to talk to and even gave us his contact information if we are in the area where he lives sometime. The assistant to our contact in Tasmania picked us up at the airport and took us to our apartment where we will be for two weeks. It is small, but very nice. There is a little yard and deck, and the basics-living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom. It is a studio style. There are pots, pans, etc, but we need to get some essentials such as soap and paper towels. The car we have been given to use is a Toyota Camry and luckily an automatic. We were a little worried it would be manual.

Ben went to the grocery store last night (I'm still not feeling well and can't seem to shake this bug that I have.). He made us pasta, bread, green beans for dinner. He is at the hospital now where he will be working meeting our contact and the doctor he interviewed with. We are hoping to explore the town a little today and maybe figure out how to get the internet working. I would also like to unpack a little even though we will only be here for two weeks. We are both tired of living out of suitcases and not knowing where anything is!
