in the United States who understand the concept of "Northern" and "Southern" hemispheres, I apologize, Australia.

Oh, I had a co-worker once who asked me if it was summer in Europe when it is summer here (I used to lead bike tours in Europe and was talking about my trips). Same woman asked me if Amsterdam was a nice country. *sigh*

Ah, well, Ambrose Bierce observed that war was God's way of teaching Americans geography.
We haven't yet declared war on Australia, so there's bound to be some confusion among the hoi polloi regarding its location....

Madame, the Australians are also glad you are not here in July, but for totally different reasons.
