So, the last 6+ weeks have been all about our trip to India and Malaysia. The planning, doing and the posting of photos and memories. But I’ve been back at work a week now and it’s time to take stock and think about the year ahead.
At a glance it’s like most years: It all starts with summer, Roo’s Birthday, Australia Day, Anniversary, The Tour Down Under and Big Day Out. That’s just January. But wait, there’s more.
February brings cousin Giulia from La Bella Italia! The Adelaide Fringe opens (yay), and the Turner exhibition commences at the Art Gallery of SA. Alongside the Fringe is always the Garden of Unearthly Delights. The Fringe and the Garden span into the first half of March.
March brings the Adelaide Festival of the Arts, which features some ‘out there’ stuff this year. Looking forward to seeing some of the free stuff as well as paid performances. Free includes opening night with Paul Kelly and Neil Finn and on my to see list of paid things is Laurie Anderson with Kronos Quartet! And the late night club at the Festival, Barrio must be visited this year. Oh, and did I mention Womadelaide? Clearly Adelaide’s March Madness is in no danger of going away. Refer my past post on this subject.
So maybe the first quarter of the year is not a good example of ‘normal’. But it’s the best time to be in Adelaide. I’m sure glad to be home for a spell.
