I’ve made it!
I’m still at the airport, which is a bustling but not very high-tech affair: I haven’t walked on the tarmac from my plane to the terminal since, roughly, my trip to Tobago. I’m now in a shuttle bus that’s seen better days, but as long as it gets me to the hotel, I’ll be happy.
The bus, which is left on and running, with the (weak) air conditioning going, is playing Mix 94.5, a radio station that were it not for the announcers’ accents could be a Clear Channel station anywhere in the U.S..
I wonder what this city is like. So far, my sense is that Perth is the world capital of sundresses and men ‘s hats, but I’m eager to have a fuller impression of the place.
