    -Describe one similarity between your inquiry country and Australia.
    One similarity with Japan and Australia is the food. Both countries really appreciate their foods and sometimes they even eat the other countries food.

    – Explain which Asian food you liked the best and why.
    On inquiry day, I thought the Japanese pancakes were the best by far. I think they were the best because you had more than one topping to put on it and they were made from scratch. They were absolutely delicious.

But they like quiet and it’s really relaxing but the footy isn’t relaxing it’s really loud and close so it will be scary.

    The Transport, The transport is different because there is really dangers and nobody cares but in Australia we are safe we stop for people and everything but in Thailand they don’t care they just keep going they don’t care what happens to you.
