However, I'll have a go, though the other Aussies might give be a sholocking (similar to 'bollocking' in the UK) for my biased 'Sydney-ite" opinion . . .
It's the little detached (virtually unimportant) piece of land on the map right at the bottom of the East Coast. Sometimes it's left off the map . . . can you find it???
(C'mon guys, laugh - this is very tongue-in-cheek)
I've been all around it (in a day) and it's LOVELY!!
It's also where the Port Arthur massacre took place (did you hear about that?) . . . well actually, this is hard to talk about as one of my good friends was killed there. . . .

Anyway, she'll be married tonight - around midnight here, so it'll be a late one!!
Can you believe she met him in a pub in Sydney during the Olympics??

Martha - I forgot to add that 'Tassie' (as we like to call it - pronounced 'Tazzy') is also known as the Apple Isle - they grow BEAUTIFUL apples there . . . .
This morning I heard a radio commentator ask if the Frederick-Mary union was going to be known as the "Apple Danish"

We Aussies are an interesting lot, no wonder Frederick chose Mary. I think she is lovely & will be watching THE wedding at mid-night to-night.

P.S. Am catching up this morning! t.v.

As for the wedding: It is early morning here in Stockholm and already Swedish television is constantly giving live reports from Copenhagen about the preparations and whatever. They even had serious discussions with "experts" about the choice of Mary as a future queen. They all agreed she was perfect! Obviously this marriage is a matter that is taken very serious in our northern countries.
