Pauli, a tall dark strange englishman in a military kilt, helped us celebrate Australia Day today.
We met this joyous riot of a man while we were having a few Coronas and a light meal at Scarborough.
In a few weeks, we might forget what we ate, but we won't ever forget our serendipitous meeting Paul and the laughter he shared with us.
Thanks for the fun, Paul. You make the world a better place.

A Postcrossing post card from Vitoria in Portugal.
Funchal was originally built in 1961 to cruise between Lisbon, Madiera and the Azores. At 153m in length, she's much smaller than many of today's cruise ships, but she still has all of the essentials, including two restaurants, three bars, a theatre, a library and a casino.
She can accommodate over 400 passengers, and regularly cruises around the world during the Northern winter.
Thanks for the lovely postcard, Vitoria!

A Postcrossing Postcard from Aris in Greece.
This fountain is on the island of Crete in the town of Spili which is located in Chania region.
It's so the donkeys can have a short rest and drink.
I wonder if this is what they had before petrol stations and cars?
Thanks for the postcard, Aris!
A Postcrossing postcard from Britt in Norway.
I don't know the name of this ship, but Finnmark is a region of Norway on it's extreme north coast, way above the arctic circle. I don't imagine it would be very pleasant to be in a storm there.
Thanks for the postcard, Britt!

"Brussels: Atomium - Iron Crystal - World fair 1958 - H:102m Spheres: 18m. 2200t"
A postcard from Flickr friend Isabelle, who lives in Brussels.
The entire structure weighs over 2,000 tonnes. Each sphere is 18 metres across. What an imposing piece of architechture!
That circular postage stamp looks amazing too.
