We were only in Canberra this time for a family reunion and parents memorial. We got to see the expo Connection at the Canberra Museum, excellent show. We visited old parliament, brought back treasured memories, signed the condolences book for our Queen, the expo that was on was journalists in media, challenges, love of the job, very interesting, lovely morning tea at the cafe while there. We drove around some of the places from childhood.
