Australian Vocab

A small sampling of words I found interesting
Bottle shop-liquor store
Car park -parking lot
Anti clockwise - counter clockwise
Lift - elevator
Que - line, as in what you get in to buy a train ticket for example
Rotter-bad guy
Windscreen - windshield
Eske -cooler
Rubbish - trash
Sunnies - sunglasses
Mates - friends
Toilet - bathroom
Thongs - flip-flops
Take away - take out, as in food
Emu Pass is what the pass is called for automatic payment of tolls on the roads.

I will post separately on coffee. Ordering was not as easy as you'd think!
