A week ago my wife and I bid farewell to the land of Kangaroos, Koalas and drop-bears* and made our way  to sunny California, where people drive on the right side of the road and everybody is in the movie business**. 

Now to find a job! 

* Koalas that don't know how to hold onto a gum-tree and sleep at the same time are colloquially known as drop-bears.
