Look who made the newspaper!!

It's Perth!!

It's a little funny - the author's husband was sent to Perth for work for two months and she went with him. So she has written an article about them hiring bikes for the day and exploring the foreshore and the river and everything, and it is all very complimentary and lovely. At the end of the article is a little blurb saying that Air Canada connects to Perth through other Australian cities as well as through Asia. There is no mention as to how much it actually costs to get all the way from the east coast of North America to the west coast of Australia, nor tell you that it will take nearly 24 hours of flying time and up to 15 hours of transit time to complete the journey! Which is a good thing really, since Montrealers kind of freak out about the 6 hour flight to LAX......

You can read the full article on the Gazette's website here. The Gazette is Montreal's daily English newspaper.
