When I read Canberra - Why wait for death? on page 127 and started to LoL I decided to mention it here. Whether you want to go to Australia or you've already been or even if you don't have any plan to go, this is an excellent book. You learn and laugh at the same time! Thanks Bill for writing the book and Maarten to lend it to me!
