Familiar Sights in Unfamiliar Places

When you travel halfway around the world you expect some things to be different.  You rather hope things are different, that's part of the reason you're traveling so far.

Ibis wander the parks in Sydney looking for scraps
Still, it's nice when you unexpectedly see things that make you feel like home (and I'm not talking about seeing a McDonald's or Starbucks).  Take, for example, the yarn bombing at the entrance to an Artists' Studio and Gallery in Queenstown, New Zealand.

And how about this?  I spied these coloring books for sale in Queenstown.  

Who knew we artists were so globally connected?

Sounds like a fabulous trip and you made the best of the delay going home. Looks like you learned a lot and got a lot out of your trip - great way to start off the new year!
