typing this in liz's aunt angela's fabulous house, 70km outside of melbourne. it's fantastic. From the veranda on the first floor (yes, as opposed to one on the groundfloor) you can see the ocean and the city centre across the bay.
reeling still from the cricket defeat today, which was on the radio on the way back from the city. You HAVE to come down here, it's brill.
San Fran was superb, Auckland wasn't much of a city tbh, but there are fantastic places around it. Drove 1000km in 3 days. This included the ace hairpins of the coromandel peninsula, which i loved driving, and made all my passengers car sick.
i'm keeping the journal, and will publish on return. online time hard to come by. Speaking of which...
til NZ (Monday we fly there) where hopefully I'll have more leisure time to update.
