l.a. to melbourne

goodbye hacienda hotel and marvelous trees
hello australia!
i first saw...eucalyptus
but the camera was elsewhere.
 and hello australia
and beautiful silks
 first impressions
 things that move me
 beautiful, beautiful and so wonderful 
 i just want to burrow into these lovelies and go to sleep
but i instead got to sleep 
in a stack of comfort
marion and her elephant have made me happily at home
and there's a wonderful lift
that i took a ride in.
more to come--

Oh! What a great way to start your time in Oz! I'm so intrigued...and a bit envious, truth be told. Enjoy!

Only by reading these comments did I realise you've been to Fitzroy, Velma. Perfect. I hope there are many more places to stop and wonder on your journey.

jean, one wonder is that so much is in the natural color that you can totally envision what to de with it. the variety is rich, indeed.
