high above surfers

later on day 2, we went up to the observation deck of the 82-story skypoint, in surfers paradise.  we timed the visit to be able to span late afternoon through to early darkness, with panoramic views up and down the gold coast as the sun set and the lights  began to twinkle.  i may or may not have played with my camera a bit during the latter phase.

arriving into england

back to summer – from the air

up in the air

i spent most of last week freezing in wellington – i must truly have a flat learning curve, to have gone down there with neither scarf nor umbrella.  both were sorely missed.  i did manage to see the colossal squid display, finally, and was delighted to discover a current exhibition on monet and the other impressionists (which i missed in college, when it was on at its home, the boston museum of fine arts).  i also discovered a sandwich that made me nearly as rapturous as the windfall of german food: reuben sandwich on a jalapeno cheese bagel.  hot DAMN.  i had to have two of those, plus two additional bagels, over the three days i was in town.

sadly, due to wind/rain/general meteorological misery, wellington itself afforded no decent photos.  i did get some nice behind-the-scenes ones at the museum, but it’s not the right day for those yet.  ;)  the flight back on friday, however, presented some very nice vistas indeed.

this morning, a mountain

goodbye to africa

i have left cape town.  greetings from the airport in johannesburg, where i am waiting to board a plane that i will be sitting in for the next 18 hours – we fly via senegal, but i don't think we'll have time to get out and walk around.  i hear there is a tropical storm making its way up the east coast of the US, so i hope we can land tomorrow.

i'll post more when i get stateside.  wish me luck!
