If you’re in New York , San Francisco or L.A. and have a desire to know more about Australia, lucky you –  G’day USA: Australia Week 2009 kicks off tomorrow.  The event is supposed to highlight and introduce us Yanks to Australian culture, food and wine, fashion, business and tourism…anything and everything Aussie!  How fun!  Apparently there are all sorts of things to make the Yanks oooohhh and ahhhhh – Australian film screenings (did anybody see Australia?), classes on Australian wine (yum!) and fashion showcases.  I’m surprised they aren’t giving rugby lessons 😉  

Australia is awesome.  I know the plane ride is far from America, but is that the only reason more Americans aren’t heading Down Under??  Maybe with more events like Australia Week, interest in the Outback will perk up…hopefully.
