Australia's capital city (no not Sydney!)

On our way back to our hostel we walked along the river and saw a black swan which I was well impressed with (OK I am very sad, either that or those couple of weeks with birds in Bolivia has done some serious damage!). That evening we watch Kenny, and Australian film about a portaloo fitter - very funny, look it up if you can!
Alex: Despite the fact everyone says it is a bit rubbish we went to Canberra anyway! Maybe it says something about us that we found it quite interesting! We only had one day there really and didn't do vast amounts but we did managed to see the Parliament House. We took one of the tours around and learnt lots (and lots of things that I don't know about the British government system). The building itself is really interesting as it is built into a hill (the architect didn't want it stood looking down upon the people it is supposed to serve) and everything inside seems to be symbolic, even the colours in the chambers are taken from the Australian landscape. If they do a similar tour at home I will definitely try to go on it!
