After a horrible drive to JFK, we had a pretty easy trip to Australia – as easy as a 15 hour flight packed in coach can be. A bunch of On Demand movies made the trip go much easier. (I watched Gone Baby Gone, The Savages, Talk To Me, and Margot at the Wedding.) Bill found it harder to sleep, but sitting in the middle seat probably didn’t help. Guess I’m stuck in the middle seat going back. Oh well.
We are staying in downtown Melbourne for a couple of nights before heading out to the suburbs for the ferret symposium. We walked around a bit yesterday afternoon. Chinatown is nearby, so we had some great Chinese for lunch. There are many Vietnamese, Indian and Thai places, too, so we’ll investigate more this afternoon.
