It's still about Brexit. Mr Pye's analysis of the Tory hopeless.

Bye bye Fiji

Hello Sydney.
This might sound either sad or stalky, but I recognise that coral, that's Malolo Barrier Reef you are flying over, I went diving there, and you have just passed over Malolo Lailai island where we stayed.

Bye bye Fiji

Hello Sydney.
You're a bit posh, I only ever travel behind the engines.

Enjoy Sydney. Did you cry when you left Fiji? I always do.

Re: Your Ride Today

Today was my first outing for nine months with The Black Horse Riders, seventeen of us in total who headed off for either a 20 or a 40 mile spin, meeting back at the pub for beer and cake.

I think that we can now understand the reasons for Boris Johnson's haircut. Not to be smarter but to get rid of the older bits that might show evidence of cocaine use.
To be honest, looking at and listening to Boris, I would be more shocked if it turned out he hadn't snorted cocaine.

We’ve two days in Nadi before heading over to Sydney where the Prof is doing some work. I can cope with Australia but it’s not as good as Fiji.
Sydney, not a bad second best is it.

Don't google "blackbirding", please!
That will be the one. When the British ripped up great swathes of Fijian land and turned it to a sugar monoculture they found that the native Fijians didn't make very good labourers, so they imported thousands of Indians to do the dirty work.

They do have an above average number of coups, especially if you measure it on a per capita basis.
Fiji does have an interesting history, and there is no hiding from the fact that they were screwed over by the British, the legacy of which still echoes.

Re: Meanwhile...

I got my breakdown cover renewal letter from the AA, the first paragraph thanked me for my loyalty, the last paragraph told me that they were putting my charge by £108. I enjoyed phoning them up to cancel my renewal and refusing to give them a reason why I was leaving whilst the operator tried sever...

Re: Meanwhile...

Whereas I am at Hong Kong airport - 9 hours Melbourne - HK just done, 12 hours HK - Heathrow coming up. Right at this moment, I don't care how beautiful the farther hemisphere of this globe is, I'm planning on confining my pleasure seeking to places a little bit closer 😀 I had a 9 hour stop over in...

Ok, I’ve decided to stay in Fiji and never come back. Is anyone up for joining me?

I'm on my way.

It's not just the beauty of the place, it's also the people, so warm, open and relaxed. I can't wait to return.
