Friday 18th January – A Record Breaker

I have been in 40 degrees in South Sudan but never in Australia. Apparently today the temperature soared to 45.8 degrees which is the highest ever recorded! We were lucky as we had the pool and the IGA supermarket to escape to for respite. I felt sorry for all those commuters who had to put up with lots of sweaty bodies in trains without air-conditioning.

I made it to Gloria Jean’s to borrow their wifi in exchange for a cup of coffee but after that I had to return to base and take it easy for the rest of the day. We took Frances to meet Jo and Hamish in the evening to go for a Lebanese meal and then onto a production of Peter Pan in Surry Hills at the Belvoir Street Theatre. A very entertaining evening which appealed to adults as well as children and some very clever use of the stage and props. When we came out it had been blowing a gale and there was lots of bits of trees strewn all over the street. Quite a change from the heat of the day.
