We arrived, safely and thoroughly airplane-bashed, at my brother's place. Not missing SWL yet, haven't had time... Fine late summer weather, in the mid-twenties. We spent yesterday running errands, like getting local phone chips and generally provisioning (my brother's family is not into more advanced cooking than throwing a selected piece of a cow on the barbie). So no sadistic pics of sunny beaches and whatnot. Yet.

In the meantime, here's a cat :cool:

Can't have cloudy days every day. Today I decided that enough was enough and got my lazy butt out of the hammock and down to the beach, tennish in the morning. Went by the life guards' shack, chat a bit. They were drinking tea, nothing else much to do -- that's how we like it.

Fifty metres from my brother's house, to the west:

It's been a while since last post. Vacation took a serious dive into travelling around country, and then, this last week, a bit of big-town living doing the rounds of the good eats and craft beer places.

One of the very last -- or the first of a retro/revival of a traditional craft: the Wandering Knife-sharpener. Bikes around and blows a characteristic tune on his whistle. People will come out with their dull knives for sharpening. I note he has upgraded to a mountainbike :)

In an overwhelmingly meat-eating country, I have to wonder if this counts as self-irony?

This, now, is beautifully self-ironic (it's outside a stylist's shop)

And we're back! To this... at least there's no snow, small mercies ;)
(and my internet connection missed me so much it's not talking to me :rolleyes: - I hope it gets sorted before this weekend.

I feel your pain. Skizz and I had just infiltrated the Morninglight when our Internet connection quit. I called the tech support line and the recording said they were doing maintenance. WHAT? We are trying to save the world here!

Hope it gets fixed soon!

lol! I think it's just the modem that's fried. I'm waiting for my modem dealer to wake up and maybe I'll get this fixed today. If not, I'll got and buy a new modem. Not the best of times, trip just about cleaned me out :p -- the alternative would be 'camping' at the office (good machine and the broadest of bands, but it's not home). Anyway, can't be without the 'netz, even when not saving the world :D
