Back from Perth

September 28th, 2006

After a very long night, I’m back in Canberra from Perth.

The flight back was packed with West Coast Eagles supporters, in search of any flight to the East coast in order to make their way to Melbourne. Which suggests that there’s just way too much money going into this mining boom.

Anyway, I’ll post some more once I’ve had enough sleep to recover…


At least my excuses for not updating this site are getting better…

Apologies once again for the lack of updates.

This time I do have a good excuse (well, for the last couple of days, at least): I’m in Perth at the Conference of Economists. Presented my paper yesterday, and it seemed to be well received. However, as a result me and my email are separated, and I only have intermittent access to the Internet in breaks.

Perth seems nice, although (as usually happens) all I’ve seen so far is the airport, the hotel, the conference venue and the pub. We have the conference dinner at the zoo tonight, but I’m not sure if we’ll get to wander around or not. I’ll take my camera just in case.

I fly back tomorrow night (Wednesday), on the red-eye flight that leaves around midnight and gets in at 6am in Canberra. Oh fun!

I am a bad, bad blogger

Sorry for the lack of content this past week – I’ve been sick. I’ll be trying to do better, so look for more stuff from tomorrow.
