Things that are abundant in Canberra

Open space
Roads
Hot air balloons
Acceptable without being brilliant coffee
Downright bad coffee
People in grey suits
White through the pale colour spectrum to beige buildings
Trees
Roundabouts
Pizzas that Greg Combet likes*
Short ugly sentences
Long complicated ugly sentences
School children who are used to the Deputy Prime Minister dropping in for a photo op
Friendly but quite incompetent hospitality staff
Cliches (please imagine the accent over the 'e' - if I were a better than quite incompetent blogger I would be able to add it in).

*I don't actually know if he likes them, but I have seen him buying them and smiling at the same time, so either he was looking forward to delicious pizza, or is just very polite to friendly but moderately competent hospitality staff.
