Luxuriating in the spa bath in the hotel for the last time. Heading back to Oz tomorrow. It's been wonderful, but there's no place like home.
... the saloon with me. All going well till a woman stuck a waxed stick in both my nostrils! Caused hysterics with Jane and Matthew. Jane fled when the woman approached them with waxed sticks! Matthew got taken over to a barber's chair for a wax and face massage. They washed his hair but he resisted their attempt, with my help, to give him a hair cut!

The staff here seem very helpful and nice so we are rather relieved. We can't wait ...
