Oh no: Oprah!

As I'm sure most of you have heard, Oprah announced on her season premiere that she is taking the audience to Australia!  We left Chicago to get away from Oprah and now she is following us.:)  She is going to tape her show at the Sydney Opera House and the tourism industry here is of course thrilled with all of the publicity. 

In other news, we are currently in Hobart about 2.5 hours from Launceston.  Hobart is Tasmania's capital.  We are staying here for two nights.  We are here because Ben has a meeting tomorrow regarding his medical license.  This is part of the process for him to begin working. 

Reading a great book right now called, "A Town Like Alice."  It is by Nevil Shute and was published in 1950.  A lot of the story takes place in Australia and is about a girl going to Australia after World War II to find an Australian soldier she met while a prisoner of the Japanese during the war.  My friend Marissa recommended it to me and I was able to find a copy of it in one of the second hand bookstores in Launceston.  New books are very expensive in Australia so I plan on shopping at the second hand shops and getting a library card while here.
