Return to Oz

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!
from My Country, by Dorothea Mackeller

Back in my home country of Australia, just for a few hours at the airport.

One more flight to Christchurch, New Zealand, then a couple of days of preparation and another flight to Antarctica. It's a long way to the ice!
