We just had the opening evening’s drinks. Sean is here from Seattle, and Cally and Rose. It’s good to see some of the old faces, and the new. The weather is hot and steamy. I find it an incredible place, not like anything I have previously expereienced. There is the ultra modern and the very old, all within a few metres of each other.
A bunch of us Australian and New Zealand MVP’s are going to an ANZAC day ceremony at Kranji War Memorial tomorrow, leaving at 5 am. This is personally significant to me as my father fought in the last world war and he has now passed on. It gives me a moment to pause and be thankful for the sacrifices laid down by so many, to give me the freedoms I enjoy.
