We had a surprise round-trip: Canberra-New South Wales-Canberra this afternoon thanks to a car breaking down. In these pictures you can see Canberra from across the border in NSW.

One good thing to come out of Qantas’ annoying decision to shift over to the Middle East and leave Singapore with no customers? Flights between Singapore and Australia are great fun for passengers!
In economy class we had three seats each and flight attendants so bored they kept offering drinks. One guy even made us champagne and orange for breakfast.
I’d say something more intelligent about the trip, but for only the second time in my life I seem to have jet lag. I don’t know what happened to me!
We bought some old Soviet books in Lviv yesterday. This one, about Lviv’s Opera and Ballet Theatre (called by the Russian name, Lvov, here, being the USSR) was especially appropriate, as we went to a ballet there for the second time last night.
The end of the book goes on about the beauty and happiness of collective farming. Uh… no.
