It was a crazy long day to get to Perth,  3,12 and 4 hour flights! But Kate was right there to meet me at the baggage claim, if you don't remember who Kate is I'll remind you!  I met her 3 years ago when I was traveling in Europe and we've been best friends ever since and have taken trips together every year. I stayed with her for a few days in England, she came out to visit me, I went out to visit her, and now we are traveling around Asia together for a month and a couple of weeks on the Australia east cost.
We went straight back to her house, chatted for a while and then went to bed because she had to get up early and go to work in the morning. I slept till 11 and her mom who i never met, came around to pick me up and take me over to her house so i could use the computer. A very nice lady, a chatterbox just like her daughter!  Kate came over after work and she made us dinner.  Then we went back to Kates house and got ourselves dolled up for a night out
We first went to a bar where her roomates friend was having her birthday party, we had 1 drink there and left to the next place. It was a big pub with a live band and it was ok, a lot of older folks though and one guy jokingly said that saturday nights were 'grab a granny' night! hahaha.  We chatted with a group of local guys one of which was very drunk and very very rude to me, his brother and his friend said to just ignore it but i was really annoyed and wanted nothing to do with the idiot, but he kept coming around even at the next place. We went to a club next door and stayed there pretty much till the sun came up, it was a wild night to say the least. I talked to so many people, at one point Kate said the guys are lining up to talk to you! If only i could get that kind of attention at home, that never happens!! 
Kate met a guy! His name is Jordan and he is so cute, and so sweet to her! We hung out at his house for a while and he was very nice to us both. Its been a couple of days now and he still texts her, so hopefully they can get together when we come back.
The next day we didn't get up till way late, and we did a little shopping at had lunch at a harbor and dinner at her sisters house. She just had a baby, a little girl only a couple of weeks old! Really nice family and a little 2 year old boy named Thomas who was just a little crazy thing running all around and getting us to play with him.
We couldn't stay long though because we both had dates!  Kate went to visit Jordan and I was going to meet Rich.  I'll explain....  last year when I got home from Australia I signed up on an Australian dating site so i would have people to meet when i was traveling over here this year.  I had been talking to Rich for a couple of months, he called and text me even while i've been traveling, and we had been looking forward to meeting. I almost told him that i wasn't going to be able to make it because i was sooo tired, not much sleep for the last 2 nights.  But I'm so glad I didn't.  He drove an hour to come pick me up, and when he got out of the car I was thinking...oh.... my..god... he's soooo cute!! lol Way more handsome in person than in photo's and the perfect height of 6'3!  He was an awesome tour guide and drove me all over Perth for a couple of hours, stopping at least 5 times to get out and walk around and explain things to me, he was full of info! It was a really nice night, I wish we would have had the whole day together, but that's my fault for being a drunk the night before!!
Once again didn't get much sleep, but we had to get up and get so many things done in the city. While we were there Rich called and said he's off work early and would come meet up with us! So we dragged him around from store to store and had a bite to eat at a cafe. So it was good to see him again before we had to go. I hope that we will keep in touch and I might buy a flight to Perth before i leave Oz so I can go visit him and Kate again for a few days.
