One thing you probably didn’t know about MY Town is that, for a city its size, it has amazing cultural, biological, and landscapeological diversity. You could say that MY Town is kind of like much larger cities, such as Chicago, San Francisco, or New York City, which have their own little pockets of diversity. (Little Italy, Chinatown, Little Poland, Haight-Ashbury, Central Park, etc.) Such diversity is the reason I was able to present our version of Death Valley in my last post. It’s also why I’m able to take you along on today’s tour of MY Town’s “Little Australia.”
I hope to make this post the second in a series of posts related to the Cycle365 world. Heck yeah, MY Town also has an “Englandtown,” a “Pacific Northwest District,” a “Vermont of the Midwest Area,” a “Baltimore-D.C. Beltway,” a “Louisvillian Neighborhood,” a “Mini Germany,” a “Californiatown,” and one of the largest expanses of “Illinoislands” outside of Illinois itself. We’ve even got a “Vagabondland” representing people who have no home or job and just stop by for a while in the midst of their world travels. There’s a lot of other stuff too and if I’ve forgotten to mention your part of the world, please let me know.
So, with no further fanfare, let’s begin our tour of Little Australia–Minnesota’s “Land Down Deep.”
I took Oodahajalingoro Ave. for about five miles through the treeless plains of the Nullarbor. Many blokes and shielas consider the Nullarbor to be EMPTY and boring. I’ve never been to the real Australian Nullarbor, but if it’s as nice as Little Australia’s Nullarbor, I definitely want to go there.
Soon after taking that picture, I turned onto Kindomerapimbataree Road to visit a very important cultural, historical and beautiful landmark. It looks very much like it’s counterpart in Oz.
From there, it was a short jaunt on Kunatankarmsakimbo Highway to one of the famous sandy beaches of Little Australia. Surfer dudes love them.
In my opinion, the greatest feature of Australia is its unique wildlife. Many of that continent’s animals can be found nowhere else on earth. The same is true of Little Australia’s wildlife.
