One of the stranger experiences while leaving the US was giving up all of our keys. Car keys, house keys, apartment keys, office keys --- we had none.

But it didn't take us long to start accumulating keys in Australia, and this week we were maxed out. I had keys to: our temporary apartment (front door 1 and 2, mailbox), Bryan's office, my temporary office, and our new apartment (front door 1 and 2, garage, gym, main gate). Add on a couple of card keys (School of Physics, our new apartment) and an LED flashlight to help while fumbling in the dark, and you have a hefty bunch.

Thankfully this didn't last too long: we returned our temporary apartment keys today, and moved into our new apartment in the Anchorage at Balmain Cove. Inside, it is a smooth expanse of beige carpet, uninterrupted by any hint of furniture. Outside, the sun shines and the ocean gleams, and it is picture perfect...
