View from the Australian War Memorial in Canberra on Monday afternoon.
Australian Parliament from the back of the car yesterday afternoon (I had to dodge heads and arms etc. to take the picture!).
This week began with a public holiday in Canberra. It was such a gorgeous long weekend, and the temperatures are still into the thirties even though the autumn colours are coming out.
This week marked the fourth anniversary of the sham referendum Putin forced on Crimea. In the picture above, Russian Special Forces soldiers in unmarked outfits (at this time they were pretending they weren’t Russian) stand in front of a Ukrainian military base in Crimea during the takeover.
The West basically did NOTHING, and only now are people getting upset with Russia because of the recent assassination attempts and assassinations in Britain.
My reading has fallen even more behind than a week or two ago, so I’m a little short on reviews at the moment. I haven’t read much historical fiction for a few weeks, but recent news about the next Lisa Kleypas book has got me picking up some old favourites.
