G'day Silverada:

summer like climate all year around


Here people with money go north in winter to holiday!

small difference on temperature degrees depending of the season


Here temperature varies dramatically between night and day, and between summer and winter!

the probability of you leaving your country is zero


I used to travel a lot. But now a bank is eating me! 

countries with severe winter climate


My bird bath would freeze overnight!

your architecture are interesting, yours is kind of modest and plain


Yes, I was trying to explain that.

open land different from the crowded cities


Yes, I moved ten kilometres further away from the city centre. And so I could (just) afford a detached house.

happy to be back in my country, where I can enjoy more liberty and nature is very close


You disliked big US cities?

you can enjoy also  open land and be close to mountains lakes and rivers


This country has plenty of space. My city is called "the bush capital".

no appreciate too much is the cold weather


This city is renowned for chilly winter!

Silverada:

from the porch of my house


Your location is more urban than mine. This development has only one two-storey building! Also, your streetscape is more traditional. There are no corner shops around here! The nearest shop is a kilometre away.

riches, middle class and poors


Please show me an example of each.

cathedral Santiago Apostol, it was construted more than 400 hundred years ago


We don't have such history. Only archaeology of that era is here. I have seen the Aboriginal rock art in the Northern Territory. Your architecture is more traditional than here. In particular, that ornamental street light could not be found in this city!

front of the cathedral


The facade appears to be of stone. Whereas here, brick would be expected in an old building.

Catholic church in honor to the virgin Mary


Your city's dominant religion appears to be Christianity. And one denomination of that seems to prevail there. Whereas here, I know more the Buddhist centres. And I recall seeing Anglican, and various Orthodox Christian churches as well.

house, probably from the early 1900


I like the historical mural! I have walked with a guest, to a farmhouse preserved as a community centre. The front of your old house is more ornate than could be found here.

painting showing the little huts of our rural villages


One of your paintings? On Wednesday I was at the opening of an art exhibition. My electronic display was the most popular of my three artworks there. But it didn't win a prize. I notice a relative lack of attention to roads there, compared with here. 


My guest photographed our big artificial lake, from a jetty. I edited her image. At left is the National Gallery. Beyond Commonwealth Avenue Bridge is the Treasury and Finance building. The flag at right is on Parliament House. To the left of that is Red Hill.

The Chinese embassy here is likely different from what you see there.

Near my home is a park with a pond. It is surrounded by modern houses.

My blackberry bush is growing strongly this spring. And last year's growth is sprouting lots of flowers.


In the front garden, the knobby club-rush is tall and green.


I got a Holland sunscreen roller blind installed in the spare room.

Silverada:


That's View of Arles, by Vincent Van Gough. It's lovely! The artist had opposed blue and orange well.


I now have a problem with inserting my recent photos in posts here. This site's software had obliterated my attempts! I didn't want to upload my images. Because this site would then appropriate copyright!
