Ubuntu ls not listing??

I've just installed git on Ubuntu 11.04, and I create a directory, run 'git init', which runs ok, but i don't see the .git folder with ls, but I can cd into it?
(I'm a very occasional user of this Ubuntu box so its bound to be something very simple.)

The dot in front of the directory says it is a hidden directory.

ls -la

will show it.
