We had a very nice potluck this week as a going away party for the Japanese family in our apartment building. He finished studying and they are going home so we had a potluck in the back yard to say farewell. It was really the first time that we were able to get together with all of our neighbors and a couple we met for the first time. Here are a some photos of the event, one of the adults and one of the kids in the building.

We got to try foods from all over and Brian got to try kangaroo and thought it was quite good. We brought a bottle of Australian mead and that was lots of fun to share. And its a great conversation piece as we make mead back home in the US.

I mentioned before that our apartment building is quite a multicultural place with families from all over the world. There is a Korean family who feed the possums almost every night. The possums here are different from the ones in the US though. These are really cute and fluffy. I just happen to have a photo!

So there is a running joke that the Korean family feeds the possums every evening, but the Brazilian guy a couple doors down keeps saying that when it gets fat enough, he'll be eating it!

  1. Sounds like a great apt. If he succeeds, let me know what you think of the taste of free range Ausi possum.
