Last Friday Carlos, Alejandro, Guillaume and me landed in Hobart at 10:30.

we spent the first day exploring the city and having fun on a nice harbour cruise.

On Saturday Alfonso and Laetitia joined us and we drove with our lo-cost van to bruny island.

though we didn't manage to see a lot of penguins (season is already
over) we had great fun and even had a drink at a local pub (laetita was
the only girl there btw., imagine you live on an island with only a few
people :-O )

What's more, we met the guy from www.toptotop.org who tries to circumnavigate the earth :-O

As there was no ferry in the evening, we had to stay on the island and slept in the car. (cold!)

On the next day we headed north to port arthur which was an important prison. The separate prison and punishment cell was very impressive!

by night, we saw many wallabies and even a wombat! it's however quite
dangerous to drive between dusk and dawn as the vast majority of
animals in australia is nocturnal.

Paolos Birthday, Eastershow and.. it is time for tasmania?!

On friday Paolo celebrated his birthday in Flavian's appartment. The appartment is located next to the hyde park in the 7th floor. 3 out of 4 walls in the livingroom are entirely made out of glass and as a result the view is amazing!

The party was great fun and i didn't get much sleep this night. The reason for getting up early the next day was the .. EASTER SHOW

It's an annual event with a lot of animals (sheeps, dogs, cats, cattle, alpacas, goats, pigs), rollercoasters and sideshows.I've been there with the uts saladbowl society and met a lot of nice people ;-)

I even managed to see my first koala and a bilby in australia:

What's more. Carlos and co plan to go to tasmania this weekend and asked me whether i want to join. I still have to check for flight and accommodation, but will hopefully be able to go with them ;-)

Have to work on my assignments now :-(
