I have left the manservant (and the laptop) on the mountain and have moved in with my son & his wife for a few days. They live in a flat (condo) in one of the outer suburbs of Sydney.
There is quite a nice outlook from their balcony. Lovely gum trees and plenty of fresh fruit and veggies just across the main road:
A bus stop directly outside – the people we see waiting here provide great fodder for stories:
And, there is pretty good Thai restaurant across the side street:
So, all in all pretty good – I won’t starve and I could ride the bus if something happened to the rental car. The only thing I’m not so comfortable with are my new room mates: Two Stimson Pythons!
The bigger, and not so friendly, male:
I’m not keen having them so close to the spare bed that we can stare into each other’s eyes and I hope that I’m a bit big for either of them to squash me to death if they escape! Now that I’m looking at the photos though I think they actually might fit around my neck!!
