Todd: OK, Ann, you spent quite a bit of time in Australia recently so why don't you talk about that?

Ann: I really liked living in Australia. I was an international student and I studied education at the university of Sydney. And living in Sydney was fantasticbecuase I could go to the beach anytime I wanted and there was a great nightlife in Sydney. There are lots of great clubs. And people were very, very friendly and easy-going and I met a lot of international people in living Sydney.

Todd: Mm-hm. How long were you there?

Ann: I was there for almost a year.

Todd: Oh, OK.

Ann: And I travelled a little bit in Australia. I went up the east coast. Up to Frasier Island. Which is a world heritage site. And I saw dingos running along the beach and sharks in the water. We climbed cliffs and went through a rain forest and went camping and then we went up to the -------, which is a but north. And the further north you go in Australia, the hotter it gets. So we were able to go swimming in the ocean and I went diving for the first time but it was a little bit risky cause I didn't have a diving license, so I went on an introductory dive and I saw a giant clam that had a really purple spongy inside that I was able to touch and then the clam closed up really quickly.

Todd: So, did you, did you lose your finger?

Ann: Almost.

Todd: Almost. Ah, you're lucky. Um, it's funny, you go in the water and you worry about sharks,
but not clams.

Ann: Exactly.

Todd: Will you be going back to Australia soon?

Ann: I'd like to go and live there for at least another year. Probably I'll go back to Sydney or maybe I'll go down to Melbourne because it's a really interesting cultural city. They have lot of museums and parks.

Todd: OK. You gotta choose real quick, only one city, Montreal or Sydney, which do you choose?

Ann: Sydney, without a doubt.

Todd: OK. Alright. Thanks a lot.

Ann: You're welcome.
