Postcard from Perth airport
Duty free will be confiscated if you attempt to take it through international transit. Welcome to Australia… The Perth skyline makes a dramatic silhoutte against the sinking sun. In the other direction the low forest runs right up to the end of the runway, and the perspective stretches unbroken to the horizon. I’d forgotten how incredibly flat Western Australia is.
Past midnight New Zealand time, and another 4 hours until our plane leaves at almost midnight Perth time. Racing the dawn half-way around the world until we land in Africa.
