Flew back into Sydney last night. Have spent today trying to catch up with blogs. I did go shopping as I had emptied the refrigerator before leaving. Have still more to read.
Thanks for the messages, we did have a wonderful time.
Watched the American results in the motel room as snow was falling outside (this was in the last month of spring in NZ). They had the heaviest snow fall of the year and snow also fell in the suburbs where I intend to purchase my new home. I was, of course, ecstatic with Obama's election. Was disappointed to hear the result on Prop 8 in California.
Watched the NZ elections on Saturday night (well saw the newsbreaks) and was disappointed the conservatives won. Interesting that in a debate pre-election both the Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader (now Prime Minister elect) stated they were agnostic and did not believe in a God. That would not go down well in the USA.
Must do washing and housework tomorrow and the garden has run amok in just 10 days but hope to provide some more details and pics of my trip soon.
