Australia Day II

Australia are having a long weekend and the aftermath of their National Holiday. We are having good news for Spanish sports. Our Mallorcan, Rafa Nadal will be on the final on the Australian Open. Here you are its web page for more details on the event. 
Tennis is important for Australian withouth forgetting cricket. We should also mention their organization of the Olympic Games in 2000. 

Here are some facts about Australia, that we will be doing in class. Some of them have already been revised, for instance we talked about the platypus,
from πλατύς (broad) y πους (foot ). The scientific name Ornithorhynchus anatinus is derived from ορνιθόρυνχος (ornithorhynkhos), which literally means "bird snout" in Greek, and anatinus, which means "duck-like" in Latin.

Personally, when I think about Australia, SHE appears on my mind. To commemorate her 25th anniversary on the music world and Australia Day, she has released a new version of the Finer Feelings.
