Cars, Cars, Cars....

What a great weekend here in Sydney.  Since it was our first weekend here, we ran around like a bunch of Venice merchants trying to buy everything we could.  Silverware, towels & sheets, it’s amazing how quickly it all adds up. 
In our buying mode there was definitely one thing we needed more than anything else, an Australian car, which we found on Friday.  Instead of leasing a car, we decided to buy a used car, which allowed us to get more features (the cool stuff).  Our car is a Toyota Klueger -- which is just an outstanding and different name for a Highlander – and it has tons of gadgets.  The best is that it has GPS which includes a woman with an Australian accent (duh).  We call her Australian Julie.  She is wonderfully helpful most of the time and has a beautiful voice, but I can't say much for her sense of direction; she told us to make a u-turn on the Harbour Bridge yesterday, not a good idea.
We really needed a new car because the rental van we had was so big I was afraid to pull it into our driveway.  I know it would have been fine, but I kept imagining the phone call to Avis, “… you know that giant van you rented me…?  Right, that one… well it’s stuck in our driveway so we’re just going to have to leave it there… un huh, I know… but maybe we can turn it into a spare bedroom or something…"  Anyway, the giant went back to Avis on Saturday.
Finally on cars, and I thought this was just too funny not to pass along.  My old car in the states has become a movie star…    I thought I’d go see how much the dealer was going to try to sell the car for and I found this listing for my old car.  Watch the video it’s priceless.  Apparently since I was the only one to own that car they have made me out to be a little old lady who only drove the car to church on Sundays… no comments please. 
Anyway, we’re settling in with the help of lots of great people here (and lots of love and attention from our friends back in the states too).  Hope to see you all soon.  Our Klueger seats seven, so even our friends and family with five kids will fit – come on down!
