10.04.2007 – Tuesday 10 April – Pop’s Surgery
- • Lois and Shirley go to see Pop. The hospital doesn’t want visitors at this time of day so no one else goes.
- • Pop has his operation.
- • Laurie and I drive to Lisa’s, so I can check for email from work, and then on to Centro Galleria—the largest shopping centre in the Southern hemisphere when it was built. Lisa and one of her sons, along with Bryce, Dad, Laurie, Jill, and after a while, Lois, are now at Lois’s, nervously filling in time.
- • I walked down to the Galleria, and caught a bus into Perth. They have the smart-card based tickets here that Brisbane has been trying to implement, and they seem to be working well. I wander around Perth, ending up at King’s Park, finding lots of steps, and an internet café, where I again check my email. I had forgotten how sandy Perth is—what they call “soil”, we’d call “sand”.
- • I head back to Lois’s, where Lisa and her husband, along with their kids, are.
