Apparently, my family has some contacts here in Oz. That's freaking brilliant.
So far the farm work is ok but I'm together with these bunch of Nepalese lads who work soooo fast they make me look bad.
Therefore, I'm going to have to use my ace card sooner rather than later. Hopefully my contacts here can set me up with less... manual work. I'm already thinking about May onwards. That's winter and there will be less available work in the countryside.
By the way, I'm not working today. I'm working tomorrow. It rained the last 2 days so I only managed to work half a day. That's the other thing I'm concerned about. If I can work indoors I don't have to worry about weather.
I'm ok so far but unfortunately I can't say the same for the other lads. Some of them have a lot of trouble adjusting and my roomie does nothing but whine about working conditions and the uncertainty of living out of hotel rooms.
To think they all thought I was the one who would be in trouble...
Anyway, I'm still in survival mode and the escape plan is still in effect. So no worries.
Oz is a beautiful country especially now in the summer.
