Brisbane is probably a nice place, but…

We’re having so much fun visiting and staying with a family here that we haven’t had time to check out the City at all. OK, that’s only a half truth I suppose. We met up with a couple a few campgrounds (and a few hundred KM) ago who graciously invited us to stay at their place when passing through Brisbane. We got here yesterday and pretty much feel like long lost friends! My trip to the Chinese embassy this morning into the city was a big bust, since they were closed for a holiday. For lunch we all went out for Dim Sum (sp?) and then computer accessories shopping, (for Robert, not us). The remainder of the evening we spent with another two neighbors, all kinds of visiting amongst four or five (or six?) bottels of wine and capped the evening off with an extensive (well, a dozen or so) review of their huge 80’s music video collection. It’s just like being at home! Spectacular eating, drinking and socializing with friends…

On Thursday morning I’ll try the consulate for VISA’s again, and then we’ll probably just slough around for the afternoon. On Friday we’ll either go for a day tour of the local bay, or (if it’s booked up) we’ll head up North a bit to the Australia Zoo. After spending a day at the zoo we’ll continue North, inland, to Cairns to take a Great Barrier Reef tour and then start slowly working our way back to Brisbane on the coast. Although… It’s very tempting just to stay in Brisbane for a few more weeks!
