Michigan USA: Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula

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.

Michigan USA ~ Welcome

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

T-Team @ Home, Glenelg, South Australia

[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 T-Team With Mr B–Hermannsburg

Hermannsburg

[Extract from The T-Team with Mr B: Central Australia 1977, a prequel to Trekking With the T-Team: Central Australian Safari 1981.

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?
