    I shouldn't laugh but we call those flip-flops and a thong is worn somewhere more hidden!!!

    Ah yes, it would seem Australia is the only country in the world to call these thongs. It always made of "interesting" interpretations of certain styles of overseas literature ;)

    Here we call them jandals :-) Well captured David, I love the colour contrast here.

    I'd heard that Jill, odd name (but then thongs mean something entirely different in the US - managed to get many odd looks when I discussed them over there while visiting).

    Ian, yep, and it's now warm enough to wear them again.

    man, that thong is really lost! Its almost like it escaped from the Sydney mardi gras to 'the wrong side of the tracks'. High impact contrast.

    Thanks Darwin - 'twas a photo of opportunity. I tend to be a tad shy to pull the camera out at the railway station, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity.
