I'm in Casablanca now, it's 31°, Nantes was 12 °. It's brown like Australia, France was lush and green,I don't suppose they have great tasting strawberries here. How odd, this morning I was wandering around the market in La Boule, now Casablanca. Two hours flight and the world has completely changed, it's not like this in Australia!

new sat nav.
I meet a lot of people, and ate lot of interesting food, and got some cool new toys. Can we do this Christmas thing every week?
