Another ANZAC




















This morning we went down to War Park to attend the dawn ceremony again. It was another beautiful and moving ceremony, but as usual I was really irritated by the sight of people wearing their grandfathers' medals pinned onto cheap ill-fitting suits or just plain shirts. I don't know what it is that gets to me so about it.

Anyway, as I'm a pacifist I thought I would spend the rest of the day doing a few of my favourite peaceful activities:

- pouring tea
- putting on my favourite clothes
- sittin on the front porch
- listening to a whole CD
- planting stuff in the garden

We had anza day ceremonies here.. but I didn't go. Apparetnly we missed out on some ANZAC buscuits.

But I am following the criket (if only through taxi rides and thier excitment of finding out that I'm Australian). Indians and Pakastani's are cricket mad!
