    Same question. You've thrown off the southern women with an unknown international word. :D

    I expect you may have heard of the Australian Antarctic explorer Douglas Mawson. This series of pics taken at the Mawson Museum, Hobart. are authentic replicas of his actual hut.

    My local expert Jon took me to a museum of modern art just outside of Hobart that is supposed to be all the rage. I knew from the moment I had to pay not $10 entry fee but $30 that my day was going to be a disaster. This place was huge and I sure got some exercise walking its many exhibitions.. but they were oh so boring. There were two tho that clicked with me the Egyptian statue and a water display which spelt out words as it cascaded to the floor.

    This scene of hundreds of black swans on the upper Derwent River fascinated me.
