Well Lloyd has arrived in London. We really are the arse end of the world here in Australia. Amazing to think you have to sit on a plane for 25 hours to get there. Made me think of the poor convicts doing the trip here in ships. That must have been a hell of a trip for them. Maybe it was just hell in general.
So he met up with his girlfriend who is working over there for 12 months. He said she cried when she saw him. Poor guy – has women crying when he leaves them and crying when he greets them. He has four friends working there for the year and they will go off on a jaunt around europe together for a month before he heads off on his own.
A lot of australian kids go to England for twelve months after school. I think the government is setting up a deal with the US so its just as easy for australian kids to do their gap year there. Be a lot cheaper with the dollar as it is at the moment. Lloyd wasn't too impressed when he handed over $200 and got back just under 100 pounds. Euro is about the same.
But he's there and now I can rest easy.
