I’ve been a little surprised that I haven’t found more Australians over here. All of Europe seems to be represented, but there’s no sign of the Southern Hemisphere. This had led to me being one of two things:

  1. A novelty, or
  2. Presumed to be local.

I’ve been presumed to be Irish*, and presumed to be English. I’m beginning to think that people presume my accent is just that of a local suffering from a mild speech impediment.

*Strange thing is, that’s not the first — or even second — time that’s happen. Just the first time it’s happened in Ireland.
