You’re going to need a permit for that, Miss.

Quarantine isn’t easy. That said, in Australia we’ve got the benefit of being girt by sea! Preserving the status quo is that much easier because of that fact, to be sure. Sea isn’t the only vector, though. The flying machines we’ve got now – for the public that is – almost fly faster than the speed of sound. They can carry hundreds of people over a thousand kilometers without having to stop and when they do have to stop it’s not for long, unless the other part of nature has something to say about it. Each one of those hundreds of people are carrying many dozens of individual items from somewhere to somewhere else. One of them might be Lisa who’s a long way away right now. She’s in Oxfordshire, Merry Old England, where she’s¬†discovered that they’re producing toffee scorpion candies.

That’s not really a product you expect from the UK although now i’ve said it I’m not entirely sure why. The point is there are rules and regulations and the import conditions for stuff like this but I haven’t quite worked out what they are just yet. Rest assured I’ve added it to the pile of cases. Lisa’s going to be over there for a while yet and is keeping a visual diary of sorts. I like visual diaries. She’s got some good photos up which you might enjoy, like one of tasty bread or a dodo skeleton! Whatever floats your boat!
