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!
