     Title: Going Down Under
I'm going to go visit Cole in Australia.

I am writing to you from LAX (LA International Airport) in the "Daily Grill and Bar" while drinking a Pyramid Hefeweizen (I give it a 6, maybe 7 on a scale of 1-10). In a couple of hours I board my 15 hour flight into Melbourne where I will then connect into Adelaide, Australia. I will meet Cole there and the other "trainee" that is on the farm where Cole is at. We'll hang out that night and maybe part of the next day and then we will head in to Lameroo where Cole is living. I'll get to meet the family and see the operation where Cole is working. I'll help him pack to come back to the US and see if they need any help with any last minute chores. Then on the 6th of Feb (I think that's right) we will say our goodbyes and hop a flight to New Zealand where we will take a cross country tour. I have no idea what we are going to do or see, but since Cole picked it out I am sure it will be nothing less than a lot of fun. After the tour we will fly out of New Zealand and come back stateside.

I am not sure how much internet access or time we will have, but I will try to post as often as possible and tease you all with photos of us in the nice warm weather. Speaking of which, Cole emailed me and said it's hitting triple digits there right now. I'm glad I brought sunscreen!
