History/Location, Canberra: 9 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: Canberra, like most Australian cities, has a very eclectic mix of population. It's not only the embassies that make it so, it's simply that Australia has always been a place for refugees, even back in ancient times.
Thus it is that you get some great restaurants, especially Italian, and other reminders of foreign visitors.
Fondest memory: I was yet again reminded of all this when I was dropping Rosemarie's nephew off one night after we'd enjoyed dinner together. Right near his apartment was this church, one of classic orthodoxy from eastern Europe. Though it was late at night I took the time to set up my tripod and get this shot off. Hope you enjoy it.
