Am on a family tour of duty but got a couple of hours to walk the streets yesterday and clear my mind.
Of course I made a beeline to Occupy Wellington.
How delightful to see a small tent city, spitting distance from the Town Hall - without a single cop in sight. Not even a lone bobby taking in the view from the bridge.
The set up is small.
There was a break in proceedings at Occupy Wellington Free University.
So I gave an off the cuff account of the previous week in Melbourne and wished them well.
Had a lovely discussion with an English guy who wanted to know what was happening in Australia, is it really the land of plenty, do we really think the recession won't bite us on the bum?
Actually I think it will. But that's a post for another day.
Keep up to date with #occupywelly on twitter.
See you soon, I hope...Qantas you're a great way to fly!
