Day One

Well, as I said earlier, I landed safely, and was met by Jeannie at the airport 2 minutes after clearing baggage.
It seems that I haven't finished being an interesting target for various security companies – we got a mile down the road before we were stopped by the police. This time however it was nothing to do with me (honest!), but instead Jeannie's car had a headlight blown out.

Today (for it is 21:00 in this part of the world), we have been to a birthday party (in perhaps the most droolworthily gorgeous house I've ever seen), then a wander around Downtown, and in a bit (after we have walked the dog) we'll be heading back into town to go and watch the movie Sin City.

I have also discovered the tastyness of margaritas, the amazing flying fish of Pike Market, and the American equivalent of B&Qs.

Jeannie has also made sure that I haven't been killed by forgetting that foreigners drive on the wrong side of the road, stepping off the kerb while looking the wrong way and ending up dead under the wheels of a lorry.

The weather is quite nice too.
