|see-it's innate to want to big it up|
At the request of my four year old, we went to visit the dinosaurs at the museum yesterday. The dinosaurs had to wait a little longer though, as I found an exhibition combining two of my favourite things- New Guinea exotica and birds of paradise.

It's actually a dream of mine to go to New Guinea one day. The more I see of it the more I admire the land itself and it's resourceful people. There is an article in the Sydney Morning Herald today(print but not online) stating that over 1000 new species have been discovered in New Guinea in the last few years(including a one cm long frog with fangs!).
