I live with three other guys. From left to right is Nick, Zara (doesn't live with us, she's Craig's girlfriend), Craig and Paul.
The bit between the two small satellite dishes is our house.


Australians drinking with Austrians drinking with Australians

James and me

Tim, Martin and... Jay.

Karl on the left, Wade on the right. Karl bought these sunnies in Amsterdam that make you look as though you are being filmed doing things that require you to be 'de-identified'. Pisser. Wade is from Essendon! I don't know why you can't see any Foster's cans, lots of Irish were drinking them.
Bubsie (Barbara) and Martin, they're sister and brother. Martin laughed when I told him that the map of Austria looks like 'fried chicken'.

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens. There was one single eucalyptus tree, and I could smell it before I saw it.

King George II's holiday house. They repainted it because the paint had lead in it. King George: ' what do you know about lead?'

Seeya guys. Wombats: Nose-to-arse.

Seeya Sheila

I didn't put the one up of Steve and me. . It was blurry. Plus it took about an hour to get the guy at the web cafe to scan in just two photos.

Downpoor gig

The last thing I was staying in Australia for was the Downpoor gig, 15th Aug.

And Nathe is looking for a new guitarist, so if you can fill some KT-26 size-9s, give him a call. Playing melodica will help.
