Arrived in sunny Brisbane on March 10. The first thing I saw coming out of the airport was a spectacular sunset. It's rainy season here and everyone has been apologizing for the weather but it seems pretty good to me. I still managed to get sunburned.

I'm impressed by how pretty Brisbane is. Unfortunately I don't have any good pictures. Most of them are on one of my memory cards apparently in a format that no computer can read, and the rest (including the view of the highways along Brisbane River shown here) are on a memory card that I lost. :(

Otherwise I've been having a really good time.
It has been great hanging out with the old Mcr crew. I'm staying with Amelia and Rob, and was here for Gordon's birthday, and even had a chance to catch up with Lucy M. I've been taken to a rugby league match - Brisbane Broncos just beat the North Queensland Cowboys - and camping for a beautiful weekend on Byron Bay. We visited a koala sanctuary, where besides dozens of koalas we saw lots of other native animals, even a tasmanian devil (sort of - he wasn't really interested in coming out of his log), and got to feed the kangaroos. I had a great time at the Queensland Museum, too, learning about the state, including about Aboriginal and Torres Island cultures.

Just wish I had some pictures of it all!

  1. I particularly love "I still managed to get a sunburn". Glad you hooked up with some friends. It's always nice to see some familiar faces along the way. Glad you are having fun, A-A. I think of you often!
