We have been home in Australia less than two weeks, and our days have been full. Saff and I had a 'fair crack' at attending FOMA (by day) events, and Zok and I managed to share the car, and have all our guests together more than once even though we all did different things.
Zok and family went out to the Tahune Airwalk, and to have the Sushi, the best Sushi I have ever had outside of Japan, and I was sorry to miss out. However, (The fabulous) Sid came to meet up with Saff and I and we drank our way from Salamanca to the Royal Hobart Theatre where we saw a movie from 1926, all told with Shadow Puppets and accompanied by live music.
The Adventures of Prince Achmed, music by Phillip Johnston
Later we had one last drink on the veranda of the (newish) Alabama Hotel, before Sid went to work and Saff and I went to see and hear, Neil Gaiman read his new book.
We also went to see Amanda Palmer backed by the Tasmanian Symphony, so I at last, got to see what the Symphony Hall is like.
There was also swimming, scrabble and Zok's delicious cooking.
