[Hearing |reid paley ~ another personal tragedy]

I've decided Australia is just too nice. What do you think about all day when life is this good?











This morning Don roused nativeinformant and me from a pile of sleeping cats, and I drove her to the airport. Is it too much to ask for my friends to just all agree to move to Dubai, and stay?

You could just move to where they are instead, you know.

Any chance you're coming to Paris next week?

Also, where do you guys plan to be for New Year's?

I'm on reserve... so I don't know where I'll be next week! I'll keep you posted! Looks like we'll be in Dubai for New Years.

She's right... I had to screen it! I felt a little like dubaiwalla when I did it!

Ooh, ooh, you'll be here for New Years! \(^o^)/

Not very keen on Melbourne, but I love pretty much everywhere else in Australia. Except Canberra which is just bleak. Give me Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth any day. And Cairns. God I love Cairns.

So sorry to have missed you at the weekend - I was away in Kazakhstan, and only got your message when I got back to Dubai airport :(

Whoa, I assumed I hadn't heard from you because it was late on a weeknight (and typically last-minutey). I didn't imagine you were in Kazakhstan. Verry niice!

Of course! That's the Federation Square building in Melbourne, and it's connected to the Flinders Street Station. There is a picture of the more traditional Flinders Street Station building at http://chu-hi.livejournal.com/90912.html.

I should be more diligent in posting rail photos! There are a few tagged at http://chu-hi.livejournal.com/tag/trains, but not nearly enough!
