  1. fascinating man
    iceland to spain via andorra?
    canary islands to venezuela
    hitched a lift on a container I suppose

    You know what I found amazing in Queen street yesterday? THe new pedestrian crossing signs with the little green mans whose legs move – and the countdown to the green light for cars. Very useful I found.
    If you ever get a chance to take a (moving?) photo of that… wonder if they are anywhere else in the world. Not in Sydney yet anyway.

    Excellent portrait snap. I wish a safe trip and lot’s of fun for him.
