Happy Australia DayMonday, January 27, 2014
I had asked a few Aussies of what they were really celebrating, but not many seemed to be too sure, except that it was a huge national holiday. A quick Google told me it's the day when the first fleet of convicts arrived into the harbour in Sydney, and the Union Jack was flown up. So, it's the first day the British officially started a new life in this vast island nation. Something worth celebrating, for sure.
