Australia

Making the most of my last days in Oz

I arrived back in Sydney on Sunday morning with the following priorities:

  • See if I could get camera fixed
  • See the Picasso exhibit at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, etc.

Three days in South Australia

After an uneventful flight from Melbourne, I found myself in Adelaide, in South Australia, in the centre of Australia on the south coast.

Checked in with Peter and Suzy George, in their modernist house just off Henley Beach, west of Adelaide proper. My accommodations were spacious...

Police "PR," Australia style

Australia is agog.

"Prime Minister attacked by wild mob." "Gillard saved from Aboriginal riot by police." Lurid media stories are accompanied by photos of Prime Minister Julia Gillard being hauled through a crowd of police, losing her shoe, stumbling and falling at one point, being shoved into a car, and hauled to "safety."

Two days in St Kilda

On Tuesday Rod's son Harry and father Ken kindly drove me into Melbourne proper to a beach community called St Kilda.

I've arranged places to stay in Melbourne and Adelaide through airbnb.com, a kind of worldwide dating site for travellers and rooms.

Melbourne with the Massons

Arrived at Sydney's airport Sunday morning around 6am to the most incredible crush of people I've ever seen at an airport.

Good thing I had arranged for my boarding pass online, just to have an incredibly convenient airport experience. Trouble was, the line to leave one's bags was almost a km long.
