    what you call vacations are holidays here

    what you call appartments are flats here
    Same in Australia, except chips are fries, as well as crisps. This may sound confusing, but you would rarley ever buy them both at the same time.

    Yeah I've seen a few Dingoes. I haven't actually had any physical contact with one, mostly because they can kill you or injure your pretty badly. To them people == food. Of course there are some dingoes in captivity who have been trained and are okay, but most of them are just wild animals.

    I guess they would be comparable to coyotes or foxes (different but the same concept is there).
