Thank you Mohamad for this fantastic experience of being a continued guest author on your blog. You have a wonderful following of beautiful people, whom I am grateful to be meeting along the way. Today I bring a favorite or rather a traditional food of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in America.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mohamad for inviting me to be a guest author here on his blog and for allowing me to continue forth with more writings of the two American States (Michigan & California) that have been my home. You are very kind, Mohamad, thank you.
I will continue with the State of Michigan, located in the northern Midwest of America. You can read an introduction to Michigan, here: Michigan USA ~ Welcome, in case you missed it. In that post, I explained how Michigan is actually two states and the only state like it.
I am grateful to Mohamad for inviting me to be a guest author on his blog. I will be writing more than one post, for I have a lot to share in the “Around the World” category. I will be focusing on one of the two states where I have lived in America: Michigan and California.
Knowing Michigan (mIH-shih-guhn) the best, I will begin with a poem I created. If you are not familiar with Michigan, you are in for quite a treat, for it is the only state in America, of its kind.
Welcome to Michigan
a poem for the renagain original collection
Michigan has two pieces of land
Miles of beaches and lots of sand
TALIPATA—The Spring Way Out West
G’day, Lee-Anne Marie here from Australia. First of all, many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi who has offered the opportunity to post the T-Team adventure series, for all to enjoy travel in Australia.
In this episode, the T-Team boldly go where few people have gone before…way out west of Alice Springs and into Indigenous Luritja country. The T-Team’s challenge, to find the hidden spring in Mount Palmer.]
[Feeling nostalgic, this time I diverge from the T-Team’s adventures in the Central Australia and share the place the T-Team calls home—Glenelg.
Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for giving me the opportunity to share the T-Team’s life in South Australia.]
My Old Stamping Ground
I grew up in Somerton Park which is about a ten-minute bike-ride from Glenelg. Even today, though I live in the Adelaide foothills, I go to Glenelg to shop, have coffee at the Broadway Cafe with Mum, and many times I drive through Glenelg on my way up north to Salisbury, or to the Barossa.
The famous and old market of Doha. It was a day full of activities. Hope you enjoy the video:

Once again, many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for giving me the opportunity to share the T-Team’s adventures in Central Australia.]
The T-Team with Mr B — In 1977 Dad’s friend Mr Banks and his son, Matt (not their real names), joined Dad, my brother (Rick) and me on this journey of adventure. I guess Dad had some reservations how I would cope… But it soon became clear that the question was, how would Mr B who was used to a life of luxury cope?
