And the plural of platypus is platypodes and not platypi – you’re not in a bakery.

Next room was the echidnas. They had 4 echidna and they came strolling out when their food dishes were put on the ground. They wandered around us checking everything out. We had to stand still and watch where they were, especially when leaving as they try to escape.

... they were rank. Our new BFF Grant the motel owner gave us loads of tips on what to do in Hobart and we were a bit less scared about staying in a Motel after that.

It also explains the lady standing on the sidewalk handing out free maps of Hobart for cruisers. We took one.
