Where in the World is Mikey This Week? II

OK, this one is easier. Too easy. Can't really think of a prize that won't give it away, so how about a jar of vegemite. Yumm! Contest rules below.

One of my dinner companions asked me what I thought about one of the world-famous local beaches, and I made the mistake of speaking the truth ... "It's much smaller than I thought it would be."

That led to an earful of how ratty my friend found certain US beaches, including one I used to live on in Florida that is at least 20KM long and has far whiter and cleaner sand, better waves, less risk of great white sharks, and a not quite as ratty town behind it. Ah, the stuff from which legends are made.

Then, switching gears back into a friendly mode, came the next question ... "What did you think of the bridge?"

"Wonderful! Very nicely lit. I'm thinking about taking the bridge climb tour this week so I can take in the whole harbour."

Well chosen words indeed ... I got to eat my steak in peace as the locals basked in the glow of such praise.

Don't get me wrong, I like it here ... it's like California without the drive-by's.

Can you be more specific ;~) ... never mind, close enough.

Next time you are in Germany, you get the jar of vegemite.
