From Austin to Oz. I'm planning to flee the country for 7 months - working for 4 and traveling for 3.

Earlier this evening, Robin and I walked down to her univeristy (Queenland University of Technology / QUT), located aside the Botanic Gardens. We went to the fenced off area of the gardens to catch this evening's film screening at the Sunset Cinema. For AUS$13 each, we caught "Adaptation" with Nicholas Cage and Meryl Streep. We walked into the inner square, handed the gatekeeper our tickets, and he gave us some blankets to spread on the grass. Classy.

Before we found our patch o' green, we picked up a bottle of wine and a pizza, sold by some caterers inside the viewing area. Convenient! After having found our spot, we enjoyed the Yank flick, all the while, little Aussie possums would investigate everyone's seating area for food scraps. Now, before any ladies become squimish, Aussie possums look nothing like US ones. Aussie possums resemble Madagascarian lemurs. Very fuzzy and unobtrusive, they are. A few bright fireflies also distracted me, along with the crow-sized fruit bats that flew overhead.

Enjoying a movie in the cool night air on the grass, sipping wine and watching wildlife. A great night, t'was.
