What else? We had the Excelian Christmas dinner. It was a good opportunity to meet with most of the Excelian staff in Australia. It’s great to see so many of us here and numbers are growing. Shirin (who else?) organized the diner at the Wildfire restaurant. Great location, great food. A Brazilian barbecue in front of the Opera house cannot go wrong! Oh! And on a side note, I won the Christmas joke contest. I know, I know...
Speaking of grilling meat, it’s barbecue season here. So far we’ve had one pretty much every week-end. It’s easy: every respectable house has a “barbie” (so house party = barbecue), pretty much every beach in Australia has public BBQs and the quality of the meat in this country is incredible! GFB FTW! (Translation: Grass-Fed-Beef-For-The-Win). You can see me at work and also Cihan here being a good Australian, “slipping a shrimp on the barbie”.
What else? Surfing and the likes. We finished our lessons. Cihan and Shirin bought all their gears and are catching the waves every week-end and/or sometimes in the early Am before work.
What about me?! Have I bought a board? No. Why? Well, picture a clumsy penguin on a bicycle. See it? Ok: that’s me on a surfboard. So errr yeah. It’s very very frustrating... so I’m trying other things, like paddle boarding, kite surfing, etc. Piece of advice for anything like this: kinda useless in London, here Groupon is your best friend.
What about the others? Who are the others? What am I talking about? Let’s recap because this post doesn’t make any sense. I started writing it almost 2 months ago and in the meantime few more people arrived in Sydney: Laurent, Ronald, Ingrid, Stella, Sipho and Pablo. You can see a bunch of us relaxing around a Friday drink.
A’right, anyone else wants to come to Australia?
