Far from home

I am a stranger in a strange land (an Englishman living in Australia). Although many things are culturally connected, the two countries are as different as they are the same. I suppose you don’t really notice the similarities so much, but the differences really stand out.

I was doing some work on the categories list of the True Local website yesterday and it highlighted how far away from home I am. Example categories include:

  • Squid jiggler
  • Drug plant growing
  • Dingo hunting or trapping
  • Snake catching
  • Prostitution services

Either illegal, irrelevant or just plain strange, I doubt if any of these appear on the UK’s Yellow Pages.
