I have been reading about the bushfires in Victoria, Australia and looking at the videos on the ABC NEWS website. Horrendous, shocking and even from here I can feel the pain of those communities. 80 people dead. Roads littered with burnt-out cars with the people, dead, still inside and no-one knows who they are. Towns wiped out. It is a holocaust.
But I came across this little snippet..... enough to make you smile on a sad, sad day....
It's so hot!
The soaring heatwave across South Australia has seen koalas come down from the trees and seek water.
I was out riding in the Adelaide Hills and my friend spotted a very dehydrated koala.
It was so thirsty it drank out of two water bottles.
This is quite ironic considering the word ' koala' is erroneously said to mean 'doesn't drink', so this photo should be kept for the history book
