Tuena Talk Back

Tuena Talk Back er et lokalblad fra den Australske Outback. Bladet kommer en gang om måneden og bringer ”lokalt” nyt. Gennem årene har det fået en anseelig læserskare. For et par år siden blev jeg opfordret til at skrive en dansk ”klumme” til bladet.

Det har jeg gjort siden. Med samme interval er bladet dukket op i min post, og jeg har ved læsning af stort og småt lært Tuena og Tuenas befolkning at kende på en måde, der gør et besøg på min næste tur til Australien til et must.

Jeg takker Gretchen og Eric for et varmt venskab og for deres venlige måde at rykke mig på.

 

 

 

Tuena Talk Back is a local magazine from the Australian Outback. The magazine is published every month with “local” news. Over the years it has got a great number of readers. Few years ago I was asked by the publisher to write a Danish column.

So I have done ever since. Every month the magazine has turned up in my mail and I have learned about Tuena and the people living there in a way which makes a visit in Tuena a must at my next visit to Australia.

 

Thanks to Gretchen and Eric for friendship, good response and a kind way of telling me to keep deadline.
