I hope all and sundry had a happy new year!
I am now settling down in Melbourne in a new role and in a new apartment. Just yesterday the home internet connection chestnut was cracked at last, so that means that service here will resume shortly. Despite being shocked by the chilly winds that blow around the Yarra in the late afternoon – even in Summer – I am excited about being in Melbourne and having a whole new city to explore. Melbourne readers feel free to drop me a line (guy -AT- guyberes.com) if you’d like to catch up for a chat and/or a beverage over the months ahead.
2009 promises to be a fascinating year in Australian politics, and of course global politics, what with the ongoing fallout from the financial crisis and the enormous expectations placed on the incoming Obama Administration in the United States. Nobody ever said that being a political tragic was easy.
