SXSW 2007

This is my travel blog. It started as a way for people to keep up with my trip to Australia to watch the 2006/7 Ashes series, and continued with my trip to SXSW 2007 in Austin, Texas, and Las Vegas in March '07.

This is the view from our hotel window (actually our balcony) in Adelaide. I don't think you could get closer to the Oval without actually staying in it!
Just arrived in Adelaide & its raining. So there's hope for England yet. The word is we will play 2 spinners with Anderson making way for Panesar. So we should get a few rounds of "Oh Monty Monty, Monty Monty Monty Monty Panesar" for the next few days.
Yesterday was spent just pootling around - I visited the maritime museum in the morning, and tried to visit the Art gallery in the afternoon. Unfortunately it and the Modern Art Gallery were both closed thereby proving the old theory about whenever an Aussie hears the word culture he reaches for his gun.
In the evening we both did the Story Bridge climb - a sort of Sydney Harbour bridge climb wannabe. We started in the twilight and the sun set while we were on the bridge giving us great views of the city at night. Unfortunately you aren't allowed cameras so couldn't get any photos but take my word for it the views were superb. We also we lucky (if you can call it that) that there was a big electrical storm sweeping round the edge of Brisbane at the time & we got brilliant sight of the lightning strikes. I'm not so sure Moz was that keen on the idea of being on a large metal structure in a storm but he seemed to come round to the idea eventually.
