Can't We All Get Along?

On our trip to Newcastle, we stopped in the town of Stockton, which is right across the water from Newcastle, and took a ferry to the city. On the ferry back to our car, some guy started hassling SAHF about being American. He was saying random things like “Americans go home” and “We don’t want Americans in Australia.” I'm not really sure what else he had to say since I was fairly oblivious to the whole thing. SAHF did his best, "you talking to me?" and the guy settled down and that was the end of it. However, it was an unfortunate incident in an otherwise really great weekend.

Wow! We haven't had any negative comments yet and we've been here for over 9 mths! BTW, I found you on Playgroup Dropout's blog and posted a response to your question, seeing as I made a 20+ hour flight here, with a 5 year old and a 2 year old. :)

I have to say, this has been the only instance. Most people have been very nice and friendly.
