The trek back...

After several days in Melbourne and Brisbane, I am now headed back to the US. Going home two days earlier than expected, but with the prospect of wandering around LA for twelve hours between connections.

That maybe the way to beat jetlag....

Yesterday made a presentation to a small group at Griffith University, and enjoyed the exchange of comments afterwards. The weather was very warm, especially when you make the mistake of dressing in long-sleeve dress shirt, tie and jacket. The walk from the hotel -- about half a mile -- uphill! -- at noontime, the warmest time of the day! -- took its toll. I was drenched by the time I reached the seminar room where folks had been waiting patiently for a bit (I was not quite sure of the time).

This was my second trip to Brisbane, the first being ten years ago to a conference held in city centre. This time I got to see the campus area, and it is quite modern with hallways in the open. Spent time chatting with colleague doing interesting work on accountability, and then had dinner with my hosts.

All in all, relaxing and enjoyable trip -- now for the two day journey back....
