New ! We tried to go Friday when it was ridonkulously busy. But I was determined to make it work! So exactly how busy were the Night Noodle Markets, 's annual Asian street food fair spectacular extravaganza? 🍜 youtu.be/lhnuVNCMeGM

Bike ride tonight took me around the usualish route, across the Story Bridge and back through the city.

Filthy, filthy mess after the rain and alluvium, had to hose the bike and take a shower with my clothes on hahaaaaaa, but it was good fun

Covid 

The rain has lifted. I'm here to escort mum to the footy. Highest per capita covid rate in the world but you wouldn't know it 😷

“did I just see lightning or am I having a stroke of some kind?”
