Sep 9, 2003 - First Message Home From Oz

G'day to everyone in Ireland We hope everyone is keeping well. We hope the weather is unbearable. Our flight was as uneventful as a 24hr flight can get. We had a brilliant entertainment system to keep us occupied with movies, sport, TV, even games such as Tetris, hangman and x's and o's (which was impossible to beat). We only had one delay for about an hour while on the plane at Heathrow and amazingly we arrived at exactly on schedule at 4.45am. We hadn't slept that much so the first two days were pretty tough. At the moment we are staying...

Went down the road to the Argo about 11am. Had a nice steak lunch there and had a few drinks. Went back to the flat and repacked our gear. Caught a taxi down to the railway station - had about 7 pieces of luggage with us. Took 2 bags with us on the train, overnight to Adelaide, leaving at 9pm. Not a very comfortable trip - only had layback seats.

Went to the laundromat and did our washing while Ian went along the road and got pizza again for tea.

Had to wait for Ian to arrive; he came out by helicopter (?) and we got a cab back to Pete and Piggy's flat. Piggy arrived home early after an accident at his work, so we three went to the Argo Inn just round the road for a few drinks. Quite a classy pub, I thought. Had pizza for tea/supper. Went home and to bed. Pete arrived home about 11pm but Ian and I were still half...
