It is the first time that they have visited Australia and I think, the first time that they have actually visited a non-Asian country. Vincent speaks some English and Sophia, a little bit, of course, to my shame, my Mandarin is almost non-existent.
So, we picked them up from the airport yesterday morning and, as they were keen to start sightseeing straight away, we headed to Werribee Mansion to show them a colonial grand home and then to lunch at the nearby Shadowfax Winery.
Werribee Mansion is just stunning, it was completed in 1877 by the Chirnside brothers, wealthy landowners. It is in the Italianate style.
Marvellous, isn't it?
