- First, when I went to the chemist (pharmacy), I had to buy some ibuprofen, but I had to be briefed since it was a behind the counter kind of medicine.
- Second, it was interesting to see that Aussie PM John Curtin during World War II defied Churchill and FDR who wanted Aussie troops coming back from the Med to go to Burma. Curtin wantd them back home for defense against a feared Japanese invasion (that was never planned).
- Third, first PM was nicknamed Toby Tosspot!

Last Day in Canberra
I had a great week in Canberra. It ended with three last conversations, including one that addressed a lot of questions I had. So, just a few last thoughts from Canberra.
