Awake, sore back from flying and lugging my pack into the hotel (tough life).   Have a bath, noodles for breakfast and then fall asleep again. Get up midday, shake off the need for familarness  - and out into the chaos.  Walk out of the air-con into almost solid wall of damp heat and smells.  The Petronas Towers loom in the distance, the mopeds are

The airport.   Enough said.   Leaving somewhere when you have no idea if you will be back is always an emotional experience.   Knowing that that little red line you have to cross as ‘passenger only’ can make a grown man

At last, ticket purchased.  Good on you Zuji.com. What a price, even with tax included.

Flight departs Australian soil at 16:30 Sat 28th Oct 2006. 1 week away. Strange feelings. Now it’s all go  – it’s amazing when you think about uprooting yourself from 6.5 years of your life.  How to describe… Like how your stomach feels… like a cross between christmas eve as a child yet also like you’ve been called up to see the head-mistress at primary school.  The fact that I put my credit card into the train ticket barrier at Kings X today makes me think it’s more the latter feeling.

So – had the leaving party last night at Tatlers, in Kings Cross, Sydney.

FUN FUN FUN and so many lovely people there to make it a great crowd. Very sad to think that ‘s my last party in Sydney.  Hate goodbye’s – so it’s just as well I had no idea when people left (or when I left for that matter).  Photo’s are here
