Happy New Year Me Old China

Apparently, six jumbo jets laden with Chinese citizens arrived in Cairns yesterday in time to celebrate the new year, but still the buzz of the town was barely discernible over our whispered conversations. We met old friends from Melbourne, caught up with people we hadn't seen for years, spoke with others we'd never met, made promises never to waste another precious minute of our lives and all of this at a pace that was ever increasing.
Today it was breakfast in Cairns, brunch in Townsville, pizzas from the oven in Daisy Hill for dinner,  (Happy Birthday Sue), then home late.
Roger is still near the front of our thoughts, but already we are beginning to wonder if the last few days actually happened.
We have been riding the Orbitron.
