Thoughts from Australia

This is my last day at the Melbourne Writer's Festival.  I'll be doing my last program at 4PM, and then it's off the University of Western Australia in Perth.  Thanks to the organizers and sponsors for bringing me down here, and also to Antonia Hayes at Random House for setting everything up.

The Festival is held in the Australia Center for the Moving Image, a striking complex on the Yarra River.  This is BMW EDGE.  I was a guest there for the Friday night event.

The people have all been friendly. Here are some other images of the festival

As an American who's never been here before I can't help but see some contrasts between this country and my own.  The first thing I saw was the cars.
