What’s news in Australia …

DSCF0395_2Australia continues to be a discovery in my fourth year here.

Some time in the past fortnight I heard the morning news—ABC news—in South Australia. There was a traffic report. From memory it went something like this:

There is a tractor on the road between Sterling and Handorf. Driving slowly. Causing delays.

At which I doubled over laughing.

What’s news in Australia would not be news in Ireland.

A tractor. On the road. Causing delays …

That’s not news in Ireland. That’s life!
