Australia, the Country of My Friend
by Eduardo Rivera Jaramillo
My friend Thong
I have never been in Australia, but it's one of the things I'd like to do. I have a friend of Australia, my great friend Thong.
Thanks to him, I have known some things about Australia. For example, before coming to Japan I knew the significant economic level of the majority of the inhabitants of Australia. Australians, also known as "Aussies," enjoy a great quality of life, of a carefree lifestyle, and a considerable level of education.
But now that I have known my friend Thong, I know this quality of life is reflected in their friendly nature and relaxed behavior. They are simple, and highly value the equality of people, without distinguishing between social classes or levels.
In addition to the knowledge of some things that my friend told me, I investigated more about this country on the Internet, and I am delighted with Australia because is a very beautiful country. It has magnificent places, also amazing animals, and especially the food seems to be very delicious, as are the roasted cuts of meat, grilled steaks, chicken, and other forms of meat generally accompanied by vegetables. I only just see it and I feel hungry!
The typical Australian dish is meatloaf. I was surprised when I saw other common dishes in the diet of Australians such as meats cooked with exotic animals like crocodile, kangaroo, or buffalo. I have not tried it, so I need to ask my friend who knows about that!!!!
