South for the winter..

I've just spent three weeks or so in Sydney, escaping the ravages of Dutch winter. Going home for a while is just the thing I need to be able to continue to enjoy my time in Holland, and it gives me a chance to catch up with family, friends, etc. I'll add a few anecdotes here gradually.

From the geeky side of things, I got an ADSL line installed at my parents place, and now host my Aussie box there, complete with streaming radio and tv.

A battle between three year old sunscreen and the Aussie sun resulted in peeling skin and a new bottle of sunscreen.

Air conditioning was a godsend, after having acclimatised to the Dutch chill.

Jetboating rocks and should be tried at least once. Thanks for the voucher Tom!

Hong kong has more mobile phone shops than people.

It is impolite to constantly fart on long haul flights.

You can never have too much Yum Cha.
