We couldn't sleep every well last night, not sure if the temperature is getting hotter here in Australia or what.  But eventually we had a good few hours sleep, and didn't wake up until 9AM.  Looked in the internet for things to do, e-mailed all the travel agents involved in planning our trip, and looked into getting visa's for Brazil.  What a pain that has been.  We could't get a visa before we left, because we needed to enter the country within 90 days, and we had so many other places to stop before heading to Brazil.  Found a list of requirements and wrote an e-mail to them , hoping the visa will be process the day we hand in the paper work, unfortunatly I will not hear back from them for 48 hours, what fun..  Looked into different Fraser Island trip, found a good one, that we decided on..
Nadia told us about a few places we could visit before we leave for our trip.  We were already to go when a new show came on TV that Robert has been watching "Everwood".  It's a pretty good show, one we would watch when we return home, if it places in the U.S.  It is amazing how many American TV shows and movies are shown here in Australia.
  After the show we were all ready to go again, when he decide he would try to call another relative he found that had moved to Brisbane from Sicily -Cathy.  They were thrilled to hear from him, so we had plans to have a BBQ at their house tomorrow at 2PM.  By this time it was almost 4PM, we needed to get Franks "Mobile" charged up with money, we used it all up and needed to run to the store for some dinner.  Robert offered to cook again tonight, Chicken with a Mango Chutney.  -It was awesome.
We went to the next neighborhood over... Tagium, did some grocery shopping at Woolworths, (yep Woolies as it is called is a grecery store here in Aus) picked up a few things we wanted to replace from Nadia and Luke's.  They have been great hosts, telling us all the time to think of their home as if it was our own.  What else could we ask for?  We just do thinks like if we were home, keep the house clean, wash the dishes.  We usually share that chore if we were home, who ever cooked the other would have to do the dishes.  We just don't want to over stay our welcome, so leaving on Friday will be a good thing for a while.  They could actually have there house back.  Well, back to our day, but thanks Nadia and Luke and the rest of the Bartorillo Family.
Went back to the house, Robert cooked a great meal again.  As we were just about to eat Joyce called and asked if we could all come over for dinner tomorrow night, she was making corned beef, since I really like it.  At first he hesitated, because we already had plans for lunch and knew how these things always run over schedule, but Nadia said she couldn't do Thursday night, so we said Wednesday was fine
After dinner we all did our own thing, Robert cleaned up the dishes, Nadia told me I wasn't allowed, because I always do it.  I organized my bag, Robert cleaned the dished, watched some cricket and then the neighbor Phil came over with more travel books for us to look at.  Everyone has been offering them, it's wonderful.  We learning so much about Australia, thanks to all.  Luke watched cricket and Nadia worked on the computer.
I called it a night around 8:30, I was dead tired.  By that time Robert was asleep on the couch, but eventually made it to bed.
