A to Z Challenge: R

Posted by AJ Blythe at Friday, April 20, 2012
R is for Rainforest and Root

Australia's most famous rainforest is the Daintree. Found on the north eastern coast of Queensland it is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest in Australia. A beautiful place to visit in parts the rainforest grows right down to the edge of the sea.

I've included the word root in the context of Aussie slang. And the reason I've included it is because its meaning here in Oz is so very different to that in the USA that it can get some very strange looks and laughs from Aussies. Here root is another word for sex. So when we hear of Americans saying they root for their team... *grin*.
