Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Saturday, May 2


Well, 1200km closer to home and in a new city. Comedy situation with
the cars leaving the outback meant that we were frantically cleaning
dust out and swapping wheels up to the last minute. Once they were in
the city we realised how filthy they were. Actually it was an
enjoyable 6hr cruise down to Adelaide in great weather, followed by
brilliant Japanese meal. Wagyu beef fillet cooked on the hotplate in
front of me and served with sweet soy and wasabi. Mmmm!
Just a 2hr internal hop this morning from Adelaide to Sydney, to fit
in some time for touristing. Very odd to be surrounded by concrete
and towering buildings. I think I had just about calibrated myself
for open spaces and very few people, so there's a slight culture
shock. As we flew in I got a brilliant photo of the harbour (you can
search in the photos for it 'sydney_harbour' or I might link) - who
needs postcards anyway?! Actually quite looking forward to being back
in the UK now. This evening we're being battered by a little cyclonic
storm so loads of rain and dramatic lightning. Hope the weather's
better tomorrow for Bondi Beach!
