 Xmas Party

Day 235
Melbourne, Australia
28th November 2004

Last night was Lonely Planets christmas party and the weather outside was in the 80's which makes a change from the usual xmas freeze.



It was in a warehouse turned club and there was food and free booze there plus entertainment from the Lonely Planet band which seemed to consist of around 30 employees. It was a good night and gave me chance to meet other people from work.

It is sunday now and I have just come home from the park where they close down the whole street and have a billy cart race which ends in the park. It was very funny , I kept expecting Dennis the Menace to come down the hill.



  1. :lol:merry xmas Simon...I am impressed that you can remember what it was like...understand Edward Manson and Johnny Brownleader will be in Melbourne in the next day or so. love dad x
