Happy new year for 2011.
Recent events in Australia have taken me back to my trips out there, prompting another travelogue re-posting. This one covers some great days helping Bruce build his house on Kangaroo Island - here it is on Google Maps. I then took the train to Perth for Christmas: sitting all the way, not to be recommended to anyone but the hardiest of backpackers.
The next letter home after this was sent on 26 January (2003), so I plan to wait until the anniversary to post it. (It's a good'un mind.)
