image for Australian Student Visit to UK Goes Awry
Australian students could not aclimatize to the northern hemisphere

London - In a rare case of geocentric inertia topsy-turvy brought on by jet-lag a group of school children visiting London from Australia have been unable to reorientate themselves to the northern hemisphere.

School spokesman Nigel Penthrope says the children fundraised for over two years to take the cross-cultural trip to visit London and the British Museum and are extremely disappointed over the unanticipated turn of events.

"We are trying to make the best of the situation."

"The visit to the museum did not turn out as well as expected. Not many exhibits are upside down and two feet from the floor so the kids did not get too much out of it. The polished floors were easy on our hands however."

"We thought a visit to the London Eye would shake us up and bring us back to normal but it was of no use."

"Since we have been here the stock markets look good though. Everything seems to be going up!"
