Continued travel up from Melbourne through Albury, Gundagai, Yass and onwards to Canberra which is where I am currently writing to you from.
Having lived all my life effectively on the coast, inland population centres both fascinate and confuse me. Why would anyone life so far from the ocean? What do you do with the extra land that is in one of your four compass directions?
From this visit to Canberra, in comparison to previous ones, the place seems to be going through a bit of a growth spurt. Talking with the lovely P last night, I was amazed at the comparatively low housing costs compared to Perth. This is probably making the place attractive to live for some.
Didn’t do as much tourist stuff as I had hoped today. Was a bit sad when I visited the Telstra Tower to hear that the museum that was there is no more.
Notable achievement for the day was organising a catch up with all my favourite Canberra folk on Monday night.
