Recently, large and attractive new signs have been erected at the entrances to Canberra welcoming people to Ngunnawal country, and listing Canberra’s sister cities (Beijing and Nara) and friendship city (Dili).
I am wondering, however, what happened to our two other sister cities, which I thought were Versailles and Atlanta?
Does anyone know if they have been officially dropped, or are we just ignoring them, or have they been forgotten? I know our relationship with Versailles took a hammering when the French started testing nuclear bombs again at Mururoa Atoll, but I thought we had patched things up again. As for Atlanta, I don’t know.
[ED – But wasn’t it nice to at least see the forest of signage consolidated?]
