    Aren't you glad you weren't on one of the original ships here. Painfully long journey, totally different climate, convict or free person - it wouldn't have been easy.

    most likely you would have been a convict, stolen a loaf of bread - or perhaps like one of these guys, though I think the title " martyr " is a bit over the top !

    cute koala though, dont they have rather smelly breath ?

    You would also be very old too :)

    Absolutely. Besides, I'd more likely have been on a pirate ship somewhere ;-)

    Hmmm, I thought Martyrs died for their cause... and these guys didn't. Oh well. As for Koala breath, no idea, I don't make a habit of kissing them.

    Very cute indeed :)
