Glen Helen, Northern Territory

Central Australia had changed since I last trekked it in 1981. The landscape seemed greener, lusher, compared to 32 years ago. Good rains and buffel grass had made it so.
But, some things never change.
Mr K paced the gravel Strehlow Centre (art gallery and museum) car park. ‘I don’t want to be setting up camp in the dark,’ he muttered. ‘They’re late; we’ll have to go without them.’
I must start by thanking Mohamad for inviting me to write a guest blog. It’s a great honour!
My inspiration for this post is taken from our original interaction back in February this year, when Mohamad was the very first parent to comment on my blog. I started blogging to share information and ideas with mainstream classroom teachers and parents. I wanted to raise awareness and share tips that can make our lives simpler as parents and teachers, but more importantly, I hoped that my blog might support some students who otherwise could get lost in the vast labyrinth of education. Mohamad’s comment on that early post let me know that the task I had set myself was worthwhile.
Philadelphia is a historic city that’s very rich and diverse in culture. It’s also known as the “City of Brotherly Love”. Many flock to Philadelphia to take a stroll down the cobblestone streets in Old City, visit the Liberty Bell at Independence Mall, take a run up the Art Museum steps (while yelling Adrienneeee in your own Rocky Balboa’s voice) or to gobble down our world known Philly Cheesesteaks. I’ve been a resident here for almost 20years and I can’t image growing up in any other city. Philadelphia is a fast paced city during the day and offers an eventful nightlife. If you’re single or have a family there’s always something here for everyone to enjoy. Please click on VISITPHILLY.COM for attractions and events.
Thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for being a supportive friend in the blogging world. I appreciate the opportunity to share the story of my recent vacation to my home, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada in his Around The World category. I will be writing a different story on my own blog to connect it to this story, and the link will be at the bottom of this submission. Happy reading!
