Greetings everyone! Thought I'd start off this post with an interesting fact about Foster's "Australian" Lager. According to adviceaboutbeer.com, experts say "While international marketing of the beer often focuses on its Australian connections, Foster's does not enjoy widespread popularity in Australia." Australians typically prefer other lagers produced by the Foster's Group such as Carlton's Crown Lager and Stella Artois. So the Foster's Group focuses on the stereotypical Crocodile Dundee marketing techniques for the Americas and the UK because it apparently sells, but it isn't even a preferred beer in its country of origin. More proof that we are a media-driven, fickle society. Ha. That's enough of that, let's get back to the fun stuff.
|Not even fair|
We walked around for a bit, we finally found the koala holding/photo shoot area and I decided to get a picture. After once again staring hard at my bucket list, I coughed up $16 for the professional photograph that had to be purchased in order for you to be able to use your own camera to take pictures of the koala and yourself. It was pretty awesome holding the koala, even though he was a lot heavier than I imagined. And my health remained intact, regardless of the speculations I expressed from my last post. Take a look at Fin the Koala and myself.
|Fin and I. They told us to pooch out our stomachs in order for the koala to have something to sit on. Mom, I promise I've been eating healthy and I haven't acquired that belly since I've been here.|

The stupid bird started talking as soon as I turned off my camera. Still a funny process though.
