Have spent the last few days in the University towns of Fort Collins and Boulder.  Both beautiful places housing Colorado University.  Consequently teaming with young people. Wall to wall bars, restaurants and funky shops. Fort Collins much smaller town, with tons of atmosphere.  The main street, a mall is just georogus.  Deciduous trees everywhere and although they have lost their leaves they have decorated them with fairylights and at night it is just like fairyland. Boulder is a very busy city but still has a country feel.  Sits at the base of the rockies with very good outdoor activities. Everyone rides pushbikes.  There are bike racks all over the main retail area, you just insert your credit card and it releases a bike. Go for a ride and take back to any stand. Your credit card will then be credited for the time you took.  We have met some lovely young people in one of the many coffee shops, they gave us free coffees, the fancy ones!!! I think they just liked to hear our accent.  They all want to come to Aus, I think we will have to refurnish Kincumber, maybe turn into a hostel, lol. We are off to see Xavier Rudd at one of the local theatres tomorrow night. Will be very interesting, the oldies with the students. No doubt Gary will leave a lasting impression!!!  Yesterday the weather was perfect, warm with clear skies, everyone was hanging in the mall enjoying the sun.  Woke up today to snow and sleet.  We are veging out in the hotel, it's 5pm and already dark.
Will try and upload some videos from past places.
