i just visited Australia, Dubai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Chennai! through my husband, that is, who went on a research trip there and back again. i must say it's an incredibly comfortable way of travelling, especially considering his plane had a nervous breakdown which had him sit in it at the airport for seven long hours and delayed his journey mightily. but he did see some pretty amazing sights, such as a kookaburra sitting in an old, old tree.

tv presenters always talk about "going on a journey" to discover the origins of science, the universe or everything, their family roots, where to get the best burger in birmingham or well, any old purpose. i've been going on a journey right here in my home, experiencing the life of a single parent (not easy, even when you're not also going out to work), ferrying my daughter to and from her school. i have explored the fascinating easter rites of an english primary school, which involves parents buying hats and hat-decorating equipment so that children can make decorative easter bonnets, teachers dressing up as rabbits, and a healthy doze of choklit easter eggs -- and i have travelled to the deepest recesses of my soul and dredged up a sort of cook from there. gee, i'm glad that's over.
