Sha’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 27 Jan 2009

Location: Fremantle, Australia

MapWill I never learn how dangerous a sport is drinking! My first traditional sunday sess at Cottlesloe ended with night swiming and a busted knee! After fighting off the white pointer... Really the wave bit me instead, taking my knee cap sideways as I tried to graciously dive into the surf. I may be in extreme pain, but I'm counting my blessings that I never drowned or really did loose my leg!

So I spent Aussie Day unable to stand, straining my neck to watch the fireworks over Freo's locals and being affectionately called "cripple" by the lads in our group (said comment was to hide the chivalry when they carried my bag - I thought it died). The plus side to this injury (apart from having my bag carried, is that I don't have to scramble on top of the boat roofs to scrub off the sea gull pooh!).

My socialising has been booming. Last Wednesday Ali and I were joined by a group of her friends when we went to see The Waifs who were supprted by Anne Difranco. Nice evening under the stars. Friday a trip into the local brewery for a few resulted in me not drinking Saturday night when I attended a grauation fashion show of a friend of Ali's. Following which we went to The Moon to eat greasy food and consume sugary drinks and belly laugh, at terrible suggestive stories involving greasy fingers! :D
