Welcome to Australia Maisonette readers! For a week now I've been in Perth for the Fringe Festival, joining the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue for our "Hollywood Havana" show. It's been a week of
adventure - meeting new people, rushing from show to show, parties, and music, and giant puppets, and show biz! Each day something new, knowing that the moment I step out of the apartment, I'll be seeing something I've never seen before!
Australia is some ways is so like the United States, and in other ways totally different, and yet still a country that feels new. There is a newness here, an energy of a young people that reminds me of home.
