Neighbourhood Paper

I was commissioned to write an essay about my favourite bushwalk close to Sydney, for the Neighbourhood Paper, published in its last print edition. This seems to be the end of a unique publishing adventure. The editor Mark Mordue did a great job.

Visit to Japan

In late September we went to Japan for twelve days to visit our son Felix who works in Tokyo as a translator. We travelled to Kyushu where we stayed for two nights in a Buddhist temple near Saga looked after by Jan's friends the Otsuos. It is surrounded by canals, dug during the Edo period, and small fields of rice and soybeans.
