AUSSIES: THE CHOSEN ONES

It has been said the the ancestors of many Australians were chosen by some of the best judges in England.

We don’t  imply that they are descernded from bandits and thieves but some things happen that give you pause to consider….

We had two backpackers from Downunder stay with us for most of last summer. They both arrived at the beginning of summer and stayed until the fall.

Kali and Andy were part of the great exodus to Vancouver to find jobs at Olympic venues. A lot of people headed west just before winter.

Most of our summer guests reconnected on the west coast having forged lasting friendships while staying at our hostel in Toronto. Andy came back recently and Kali stayed in Vancouver (she’s an advanced skier!)

Andy was back at the hostel on his way to England and Europe to continue his backpacking adventures. He left a photo with us taken with Kali whom he met up with on the coast.

What is kind of suspicious is that they are holding the torch used to light the Olympic flame!  Now where do you suppose they got it…?

We’d better check to see if it is missing!
