Perth, Western Australia

It's spring in Perth, the sun is shining and the effects of flying half way around the world are slowly wearing off. Aer Lingus to Heathrow, Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong, 11.5 hours, and the same airline from there to Perth, 9 hours. A nice airline to travel with.
Passed the time listening to Bob and reading part of (a small part) an anthology of American poetry but I found it difficult to concentrate and had to shelve plans to read a novel and played computer games instead and watched a Chinese movie on the rise of the Chinese Communist Party. Still didn't sleep though.
Plenty of relaxation here - a country in mourning over the world cup (rugby). It may be wise not to crow about the Irish victory though since that sent them into the semi-final against the All Blacks.

You certainly don't let the grass grow under your feet, Michael. I can't keep up with you!

Have a wonderful time in Australia.
