More Aussie Photos, Pt 5
So what do you do when you see the US Ambassador to Australia walking by while you're petting Kangaroos?
You stand in front of the US Ambassador to Australia and take a photo, of course. We couldn't get much closer though. The gun wielding body guards off to the side (See female in black) would have stopped smiling.
This Koala was putting on a show for us. Very soft to touch, and very calm around humans.

LOVE all the pics. I'm torn between the scenery and the beasties, though.12:48 PM
I was waiting for the option, "Ask the Ambassador to step aside so you can finish petting the kangaroos and taking pictures."1:07 PM
Would've been fun to walk up to The Ambassador and say, "Dude! I'm an American too!" and give him a big hug. But I doubt security would have liked it.
Those birds are called cassowarys I think. Nasty things that remind people of the velociraptors in Jurassic Park...
