My friend went to Oz a couple of years ago, travelled around and worked all over the place. She grew up on a dairy farm so her first job in Oz was helping out on the same kind of spread. One day she went out to start the tractor, put on the head phones and was bitten by a red back. Two months later... when she awoke, she gave up on the farming and continued her travels, everyplace she went and told her story people bought her rounds of drinks. They had never met anyone who had been bitten before. She was an anomaly and now she had more free beer than she knew what to do with. Cheers

Stay out of there, Montana. He says their gardners have rabies. This is no place for you.

Only have to worry about spiders in you do a lot of gardening. And even then a little bit of care and you'll be OK. My parents are rabid gardeners and neither of them have ever been bitten.
I can't remember the last time anyone ever died of a spider bite in Oz.


Just the site of them has me running, LOL!

Hello LingLing,

welcome to the board, even though I'm still new myself Very Happy

Where in China are you from? And why are you studying in Scotland, are you joining an exchange programme or did you just move there and started to study without any help of a programme whatsoever?

I'm from Holland by the way

Welcome LingLing! I have a question....the quote you translated above, is it Cantonese or Mandarin? I have heard that Cantonese is more widely used, but I am not really certain what the differences are between Cantonese and Mandarin.

LingLing, WELCOME to A2K. Welcome from California. I'm Japanese American, but we now have many Chinese in our family, and I have visited China twice. I've been to Scotland, but only to just a few places in and around Edingburgh. c.i.

I translated is Mandarin.I from the Capital of China(Beijing) so i just can speak Mandarin,but i think Cantonese is easy to learn for Chinese people.
Maybe more people who speak Cantonese go aboard. Very Happy
