January 26, 2011
I was preparing dinner when we heard the first explosions. Why we hadnít anticipated the event is testament to having our heads in such a different headspace but once they were underway all thoughts about anything else evaporated as we stool spellbound, staring like delighted children at the pyrotechnic display erupting 90 stories up and shooting high into the evening sky from the Eureka Tower across the river from our apartment. Itís been many years since weíve been here for Australia Day and while I find all the patriotic razzamatazz somewhat nauseating, the firework display was nothing less than awesome.
