Ok ok, so things I fresh-notice again about ‘straylia:

The colours sharp.  The light, yellow-white.  The accent and built-in laconic sound, the stereotype is grounded on this.  Which doesn’t mean we all really have ‘no worries’, but still, I think it helps that we say this.  A lot.  Well I do.  And it’s great when you hear things coming back at you, so all of these ‘no worries’ ricocheting.  So part of the point of travel is to escape this familiar embeddedness.  And part of the joy is coming back to it.
