Frimpong in South Australia - by Allen S. & John H.

Photos by Allen Shubin & John Harvey

Let me quote, paraphrasing it, one of the most memorable exit lines in movie history:
"Allen and John, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
Iím a lucky bear, not only Iím free to travel all over the world my own way ( Uhm, except the details of the cardboard box, but nothing is perfectÖ),
but I have also the chance to meet new friends everywhere, one more precious than the other and all equally dear to my bear heart
( yes, also a teddy bear can have a heart).
I was totally thrilled to arrive to Australia, but I could not imagine I would have had two hosts here, not only one!
Actually I was invited by Allen Shubin, a very pleasant Pbaser ( if you click on his name, you can visit his own photo galleries) to stay at his home in Adelaide,
but when I came out from the dammed cardboard box, all dizzy because of the jetlag, I was informed that only 30 minutes driving from Allenís home, there was another Pbaserís home.
So I had the joy to meet also John Harvey ( please click also on his name to visit his own photo galleries).
Allen, John and I have been having a great time together, they are talented photographers and wonderful people.
If you are a little curious to know more about our adventures in the land of kangaroos, come to visit this page as often as you feel like.
This is a gallery in process and we have just started posting the first photos, documenting a travelling bearís experiences in South Australia.
As John says
G'day to everybody!
Let me come out, damn!
