They will see us waving from such great heights 'Come down now' they'll say But everything looks perfect from far away 'Come down now', but we'll stay The Postal Service, Such Great Heights.
hey so i got here! although i did stupidly fail to write down chris' address so that when i went thru customs i had a bit of explaining to do... oh well i got thru didnt i. haha
so i've been here a few days now. my sore shoulder (more correctly - armpit) really started to hurt again and so kinda held me back a bit but iv still managed to get out and see a few things. went into town yesterday and today, saw mosta the monopoly streets etc... bought me a hoodie (5 pounds) and some trackydacks (3 pounds) yesterday. soooooo good to have some bummy clothes! and they were from this new store thats just opened in town that had stupidly cheap but alright clothes. SO SO busy tho - getting in there is like getting into a concert.. we lined up for prolly 150m today.. and theres just thOUsands of people inside...
so contrary to SOME suggestions, the sore armpit was NOT from excess alcohol consumption on the islands in thailand but rather its an infected boil. yeah sounds pleasant doesnt it... basically i have a really painful and swollen armpit, mainly from sweating and that in the heat in thailand... BUT not painful anymore now i've been to the (freeeee!) medical centre and scored some GREAT painkillers. im also on antibiotics now as well so unfortunately i wont be ably to enlighten your days with boozy stories for at least a week or two haha...
OH the rave with Armand Van Helden the night i flew in?
it was in an old theatre that had been converted into a dance and live music venue! so there was the stage with the DJ and a big dancefloor directly in front. above that there were about 3 balconies rising high up towards the roof with couches and tables, but you could still mostly see the stage. oh and there were the oldskool boxes high up along the sides of the theatre too. oh and a massive crystal ball hanging from the roof high above the dancefloor. seriously its hard to put into words how damn cool this venue is..... oh and the music was great too. very very fun night and a great welcome to London
well this is probably the longest post iv made so i should really leave it at that.
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
