Where I stayed
Anyway yesterday went back to My Hair International on the Rocks which is owned by my friend Terumi in Japan and said I tried to contact her by email but it bounced back. They gave me another email and then I got my hair cut. It is a wonderful salon, mainly Japanese clients; open 7 days a week.
Yesterday I booked my flight to Auckland, leaving Thursday July 26 3:30 p.m. for the 3 hour flight. Can't believe it is the last country on my itinerary before heading back to Canada! Then Sean, who I met at the free jazz festival and who plays piano and I went to hear play at Bar None, a club in King's Cross, met me for dinner at the YHA restaurant which is the best deal in town.
I had planned to leave here on Wed. but decided to take up an offer of a ride to Canberra, the capital city of Australia (which is officially in the 'Australian Capital Territory" rather than in Victoria, Queensland, etc.) by car today for a couple of days, returning to Sydney airport for my flight to NZ on Thursday. It is supposed to be very cold in Canberra and NZ (funny how it gets colder the more south one goes here in the southern hemisphere). The weather is quite nice here, about 12 or so but of course people say it is too cold... I have developed a cold, which apparently is going around. But considering I often go 9 or 10 days in 9 or 10 different beds/communities, it is a wonder I am still relatively healthy! (I think).
