Austria is often confused with Australia. Not geographically or because of the size of the countries, but because they sound similar. In fact, one of our X-mas parcels was late one year because it travelled all the way to Australia and back
Anyway, “no kangaroos in Austria” is, I guess, Austrian humour, and you find it on many souvenirs, t-shirts, bags, etc.
Well, my dears, this is a huge lie! On my way to work yesterday, a butcher’s van parked right in front of me, and here’s what was advertised on the side of the vehicle: sausages, veal and pork schnitzel, kangaroo meat. I could not believe my eyes! Kangaroo meat!!?? What next? Dog meat?
