How come the USA has such blah banknotes? I love this cartoon that appeared in today’s The Australian’s Weekend Edition. The cartoonist is Jon Kudelka. This Instagram picture was taken in March by Tom Cannon, but was also printed in the newspapers as one of the top tourist pictures of the year. Coral Bay is some 1,100 km/ 700 mi up north the coast of Western Australia from Perth. (It’s an optical illusion; the fish did not ram the boat).
