Where I stayed
Chateau Jane and Gerry

I've decided that I’m getting too old to fly halfway around the world without stopping to sleep in a hotel room (or shelling out huge dollars to stretch out in business class). I’ve also decided that, respiratory suppression be damned, I need to take a higher dose of sleeping pills when traveling…I remember far too much of my last journey.  I'm not sure why my trusty friend Imovane didn't put me to sleep...I likely should have taken a bigger dose but after the Hong Kong incident 2 years ago (no recollection of lay over or changing planes on the way to Shanghai), I'm a little gun shy!
Thanks to Ed, Joanne, Jacky, and Wynne for springing me from the Vancouver airport for some food.  Big thumbs down to Qantus for their policy of NOT selling lounge passes!  After flying Ottawa-Vancouver (6hr lay over)-Sydney (15hr flight) -- I really could have used some lounge amenities during my second 6hr lay over!  I realize this is totally a first world problem, but Princess Sarah could have used a shower at that point!  

Giant thank you to Gerry for picking me up at the airport in Perth and Jane for having a yummy meal ready when I arrived!  It's great to be back in Perth, even if it's a little on the chilly (25C) side.  I was thrilled to go to both Freo and Leederville during my 3days in town -- Canada needs more funky communities like them!  It was also fantastic to see my ladies from the Australian Medical Association (both past and present) Margaret, Stephanie, and Kate.

I'm looking forward to a great few months in Australia!  Watch out, this locum Canadian doctor is on the loose!
