November 2009 - Japan

In the early mornings, if the weather isn't perfect and I have to skip the waterfront, I walk past two hotels and a backpackers.
Sleepy tourists, bulging bags, hotel breakfasts.
I miss travelling.

365 in 2011

Oh Darling 365

Sunday: Rugby World Cup Final
In the Backbencher, surrounded by puppets, I watched the All Blacks win the Rugby World Cup.

Monday: deconstructing the Fanzone
The next morning the Fanzone was already being deconstructed.

Tuesday: Cheerful graffiti
A very cheerful mural near the Wondapartment. I do not think it constitutes graffiti.

Tuesday: Brad Thorn and the Web Ellis
I saw the All Blacks victory parade & Brad Thorn raising the Web Ellis cup.

Thursday: Cheerful Graffiti
I look out for this little guy every time I walk to work the Wakefield Street way.

Friday: my first ever blood test
My first ever blood test. Yes, first ever. I have always been remarkably healthy. Even this one was just routine.

Saturday: studded loafers!
I bought studded loafers. Indeed I did.
