Well given that all my gear is with Fred I had to go and get a few things – one being the hat above (already have a sunburnt head). Also had to get toiletries, shorts and singlet. I got sports shorts as they have built in jocks! I got the gear at the local Target. Massive store and has a grocery section, alcohol, Starbucks, Pharmacy and Pizza. Always wanted to have a beer/pizza whilst I bought Panadol and tried my pants on.
It’s been an interesting couple of days. My brand new 2 in 1 travel laptop shit itself and the keyboard would not work. Kogan were quite helpful in that they offered to look at it if I sent it to them back in Australia and turnaround time would be about 2 months – gee thanks I said. So off I go to “Best Buys” and buy a brand new laptop – touch screen but not tablet mode given what happened with the last one. Thank you very much sir – $360. At least I have a box now to post the other one back home. Ha.
Some of the old cars just sitting around in the Streets are unbelievable given how much they would be worth back home.
In general cars are massive over here;
This type of thing is everywhere. Best one I saw had high rise suspension and 2 x American flags in the back – good old boy. There are also;
Mustangs are very popular – new and old everywhere.
Well tomorrow I move to Hawthorne which is meant to be much better suburb and has a lot more things around it. Sad to move given that I nearly have learnt Spanish. Hopefully I will get news on Fred soon.
adiós por ahora
