Journal 20140714 landed no clothes - Sydney

Got in to Sydney in one piece a few days ago… kids somehow did pretty well… everyone a little shabby but otherwise fine…

Except I stood there staring at the emptied baggage carousel just hoping that, as it slowed down, one last bag (that bag being mine) would slide down and deliver me from the horror of spending much more time in the clothes that were stuck to my skin. Unfortunately no such joyous occurance came through… so somewhere out there a duffle sits unclaimed…

On a much more positive note we landed on a superb winter day in Sydney… just glorious… cutting silver light between the buildings, people out and about filling the streets. I had an hour of just wandering around as I sorted some administrative issues… staring and grinning and drinking coffee (oh man how I needed those coffees)…

And now a few mornings have slipped by… Germany have won the World Cup (I was sitting with my German-brother-inlaw when the final whistle went… big grins all round)… and the bag is still out there somewhere in the world… clothes, working bags, bits of audio gear, medico kit… gone it seems… gone gone gone.
