Re: Ray from West Australia

Hi Talbot,

Just remember to put your name down for a mooring at Rottnest the day you arrive, plus:

Get to love Swan beer.
Be happy to call yourself a Sandgroper.
Support only either the West Coast Eagles or the Freo Dockers.
And get ready to be really one eyed about every other states beer, weather, politics and of course, AFL team.

Good luck in making it out there.

JOHN

Thanks no problems getting there (aussie citizen). As for getting used to it, I lived in Sydney for a couple of years, and much prefer WA! I drove Sydney/Perth/Sydney a couple of times in early 80s. The GABA is almost hypnotic.
