Today is Australia Day. A day to commerate the beginning of the modern era of Australian history. The start of a country that has no parallel. A country that has given the world many great things, two of which are pictured below. It is the lucky country, God's country.

In Australia today marks the unofficial end of summer. The cricket has turned from Tests to one-dayers; the weather has reached its hottest; the days are getting shorter; the trips to the beach fewer; the BBQs less frequent. It is the time to start thinking about the summer that was and the next summer that will be.

Unless you're in the middle of a freezing Hong Kong winter. In that case you just think about what a great summer you just missed.
