What a gorgeous day! I’m sitting here in my study as the sun - about three outstretched fingers from the horizon - melts into the horizon. I’m on the 9th flloor and there’s a good view to the west. I should be working on some boring textbooks but I decided to concentrate my energies on booze and following the one day cricket match between the pommie bastards and the curry munchers. I’m happy to report that the former are being spanked by the latter.
But back to the topic at hand - what a lovely day. Riding into Chiayi City this morning was a pleasure. For the first time in a month I could see - under an Australian blue sky - the majestic Central Ranges, rising up like a cathedral from the fertile plains. And in the roadside fields farmers were harvesting their second rice crop of the year - flocks of egrets, in their hundreds, picking over the newly turned earth.
A good day for drinking.
