. We drove to Canberra last October for the first time.. It was about 8 hours drive.. We got to attend the Flower Festival ( Floriade ) and got to see the Parliament house and the War Memorial .. I also got to hold hands with Robert Menzies.. Oh he was a big man with strong hand . My hand got stuck in his .. It felt like he was suddenly alive and tightened his grip on my hand .. lol .. I panicked .. I was so intimidated by his size and height .... Sir Robert was the longest serving Prime Minister of Australia.. 18 years in total according to Wikipedia ;) .. Have you ever held hands with a statue and it won't let you go .. ..hahah!.. Bess..

He is certainly much taller than you! I haven't been to Canberra yet. I really must get there one day.

@FayeHazel Australians have something about heights, they seem to elect the tall big men.

His thumb and pinky finger were a bit curled in .. and silly me I squeezed my whole hand in between them, so when I was letting go, he tightened his grip .. lol ..

Yes it's Canberra .. but it's a quite city compared to Sydney or Melbourne .. that's why it's seldom talked about ..
