What’s Happening in the Rest of the World?

Wyndham, WA is remote in fact it is about as far from Perth as it is from Singapore. It no longer gets newspapers. When the service was stopped they were told that they just don’t buy enough. Over dinner I hear a local declare “I watched the News tonight.” Another replied “Oh I gave up watching TV a long time ago.”

I guess what happens in the rest of the world or even in Perth, bears little relevance to the folks out here. In Wyndham especially when you live in a tin bungalow in the tropics over 3000kms away and the ads on TV are for a business in the South West of the state declaring that “Yes, there is a store near you.” You would think “Yeah right pull the other leg!”

  1. I live in a capital city and I’ve given up watching the news, it’s far too depressing! If it wasn’t for cyclones Wyndham just might be a great place to live.
