Since it's still the fourth in the States, I thought I post. I think we should change it up a bit and say Merry Independence Day instead. I tried to get it to catch on yesterday but just got a lot of confused looks. We had our Fourth of July celebration off site for the Consulate yesterday. It was short and sweet but a nice time nevertheless. Mostly all the other Consulates in Sydney were invited along with our staff, family and guests we'd invited. It took place at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in the Domain. We had the day off but most of us volunteered to setup, checkin, and cleanup for the event.
I missed out on any riding since it rain for 1/2 the day and the rest was spent preparing for the event.
Getting back to normal at work again and looking forward to more riding on the weekend. Hope to get the final details ironed out for full insurance coverage and some remaining gear for the scoot (lock, chain, e-tag, etc)
I took a look at some of the closer parking spots near work, available in the CBD, and was surprised at the number of cycles and scooters that were not locked up. I guess it's the pessimist in me that believes in a good security setup. Speaking from past history, I don't like to just leave something out even in broad day light.
That's all that's going on. Starting to feel a bit bummed that I only have 13 months left before I have to move on. Every month has been packed with travel and checking out as much as I can but there's only so much time off and money you can burn.
