I stayed low for some time because there is nothing to say. On Friday evening – Saturday morning S. arrived. I was pissed at Brisbane public transport because there is no connection with the airport after 8 pm. The only ways to get there are either by bus shuttle – which you have to book 3-4 days in advance – or by cab, having to pay at least 40$. Madness I tell you! From public transport point of view, Brisbane sucks! They go on assuming you have a car… Grrrr!
Well…but I was rewarded with a smile after all this trouble. 🙂
Then..Saturday..party at a fellow PhD student.
Sunday…walking through 35°C and lots of people in the city center. I actually discovered a very good ice-cream from Hungry Jack’s (Australian Burger King): is glazed in chocolate. Yummy!
Today was disappointment time when checking work results. Bleah!
What is funny is that I got to count the Christmas parties. There are no more than 4 we are going to go to. And, of course, all of them not Christmasy like, but with barbecue and beer by the lake or pool. Yabba dabba doo!

I gotta say..I do miss snow and cold, but I know I know..one always wishes for what they don’t have that is why I bought myself a new swimming suit. 😀

So..how’s it going?

People say that here. Often. Instead of ..”Hey, what’s up?”
I don’t really remember what I wanted to write here. It’s late and I should probably sleep, because, as usual, in the morning I never get enough.
Well..yeah..today by the question “How’s it going?”, Michael Smart actually meant “How is the presentation going?” and the answer was “Yeah, fine, I just have to patch some pictures and that’s about it.” – I was asked to give a presentation here…

I am sure this is of absolutely no interest to you, but I thought I should just check in, because I haven’t done it for some time now. I have reached some sort of a plateau..things are happening, but they don’t excite me so much anymore. I cannot wait for this weekend. 2 days of sailing at the Great Barrier Reef..just me and my book and the sun. Hopefully things are gonna settle a bit. It’s just too much information coming from everywhere and it’s exhausting. Sometimes I wish I were…it would be nice if things would just be plain and simple from time to time.

Saturday – resting day

Resting in the sense that I didn’t go like crazy somewhere. But I did go to a mall to buy some short trousers. Yeah right, of course I ended up buying some hippie colorful ones and some reddish „make love not war“ skirt. But I got used to those deviations. 🙂
I did however find some very ..well..abstract or…inspiring „piece of art“ at the train station: two old sneakers in a Footlocker brand new bag and box.
And..the second thing, I got to see the city center by night, because I was invited to eat the most delicious spaghetti bolognese (they were actually tagliatelle) and the previously mentioned Apfelstrudel. It’s maybe just as fascinating to see the city by night as it is by day. The thing which was very pregnant is that the bars are quite loud. I guess the people here have another notion of party…NICE! 😀
