So just as Australians can blame the imagery in the videos from Midnight Oil’s Diesel and Dust album for my obsession with Australia and my eventual arrival here, they can blame this post for my (hopefully successful) application for citizenship.
Or at least they could if I hadn’t already applied last Friday night while “testing” the Immigration site on my wife’s iPad.
I’ve been planning some posts reminding myself of places I’ve visited since I arrived all those years ago as part of the “becoming Australian” exercise”. With the destruction of Mission Beach this week by Cyclone Yasi, I’ve been reminded of that place and the need to start.
No time like the present.
