Off to the Eternal City!

Leaving for the airport in a couple of hours.


(That's the codeshare flight no. It's actually a KLM flight. I'd never fly Alitalia.)

E-mail me once you get settled in Rome. Can't wait to see you here!

And the spires on the west towers of Brisbane Cathedral were installed over the weekend. Still not a particularly attractive edifice, I fear, but they make an improvement. Alas, I cannot photograph the change for you: some intruder has nicked both my new digital camera and my rather expensive binoculars from off my very own dining room table. I knew better than to take the camera along to Russell Peters on Friday but the binoculars would have been nice to have, and opera glasses seemed too ridiculous in the context, useful though they would have been.

Whyever wouldn't you fly Alitalia?

At least the stewardesses would be reasonably pleasant, surely. Have you ever flown a long-haul route with the peremptory Dutch valkyries? ("Excuse me, miss, would you mind removing my tray?" "I'm BUSY!" "Oh...sorry...")
