Sydney?

Sydney's a hole. Melbourne's where it's at.

I am grateful that Pennie was too worried about me to take a picture, so I'll never know how red I went, but it felt pretty bloody warm in there! I was crying...

Yes... take the spikes off, cook the leaf bits, and eat the fruit... tasssssty. Fruit tastes like a cross between honeydew melon and cucumber... only irritating thing is all those big black seeds.

My Indian neighbour once brought over some Indian food for me. I asked if it was spicy, and he assured me it was extremely mild. It proved to be the spiciest meal I'd eaten in a good few years!

And, uh, I think I'll take your word for it on the cactus!

I'm probably the other way round... I keep getting caught out when I go to my parents' place and can't go to the supermarket at 10pm.

I'll be sure to take loads of pics for you, Ax! I actually love Amtrak trains. It is my preferred mode of transportation.

Hell, even Queensland was kind of a culture shock to me. In my little Kiwi hometown, things still shut on Sunday right up until when I left! It wasn't until recently that Sunday trading became the norm.

That's one thing I didn't get to do in the US - ride an Amtrak service. The only Amtrak train through TN runs through the very far west, via Memphis. Nothing through Nashville.

I rode the subway in Boston and a preserved train near Chattanooga, but that was it. I hear the northeast corridor between Boston, NYC, and DC is rather impressive as far as US railways go. Probably outdoes anything here.

Ooh, now the Potomac, that I did see, but from the air! You can't fly directly from Nashville to Boston, so on the way to Boston, I went via the awfully named Ronald Reagan Airport and flew in over the Potomac.
