Southern Cross to the Plenary

Made it to Melbourne. Walk up Bourke Street to Myer, windows shopped, ate Malaysian and hurried to the Convention Centre to the pre concert talk.

The Empire Strikes Back!

Good morning from the XPT

Running 45 minutes late due to weather and the need to remove someone from the train at Moss Vale. Had a few hours sleep, though it took me a long time to cross the threshold. Interesting skies outside this morning and the beauty of rural Victoria, while eating cornflakes and toast for breakfast.

Hurstville

Setting off for my latest crazy adventure. An overnight train ride to Melbourne, watch a concert, then another overnighter back.

Glad I’m not flying. Too many storms!

Back from Osaka

The holiday is done. All back home now, including doggy. Quite a bumpy flight until we were off the coast of Australia. Saw meteors, other aircraft, a green laser over PNG and watched “The Abyss”. Lots of rain clouds over Sydney, though the threatened bumps didn’t really eventuate.

Need a shower, sleep and food now.
