So here's something that seems like a non-sequitur, but my life has been an unbroken series of events, I swear, so it's not. It's just the rarity of my updates that make it seem that way. I'm in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. I still live in Bangkok, I'm just here on vacation for a few days.
At any rate, there are many more stars visible here than either in Bangkok, Montreal or Melbourne (to which I've also been introduced) and although this is my first time in the southern hemisphere (!) and I'd like to be able to talk about how amazing it was to look up at the night sky and see the different (or upside down) constellations in the southern heavens.... the truth is that I don't know the constellations in the north well enough to notice the difference. So, I admit it, the stars look exactly the same to me down here :(
