They Say Money Can't Buy Happiness... But They Are So Wrong

Yesterday we went into the city, and Hans bought me some Dr. Pepper at the import store. A mere $2.00 a can... ack. We got 6, and I will be rationing them. (They also had Koolaid there for $2.50 per single tiny package. I am considering becoming a dealer with that kind of profit margin.)

We also found Mexican Train dominoes at a game shop. I really wanted to take a set along, because I had so much fun playing with my relatives in Minnesota -- but the things are darn heavy. Again, this set seemed ridiculously expensive at $60AU, which is something like $45 American... but to have a $13 set sent over from the States would probably end up costing about that much.

Then we had a nice stroll around the Roma Street Parklands, which was beautiful and exotic with hints of home.

Today I feel crappy again. This is one rollercoaster that I am not enjoying. Maybe I just need a Dr. Pepper.
