as predicted, the weather isn't great today so after dropping the car off at the airport, i headed back to the melbourne motor show to drool over cars that, after this jaunt, i won't be affording for a while.

across the road from the melbourne exhibition centre is a vast casino, cinema, shop and restaurant complex so i spent a while in there as well. saw the recruit with al pacino which is actually a lot better than the trailers make it seem. (the twist is fairly obvious from the start though).

tomorrow i have to be up at 05:30 to get to the airport in time, and then it is a day of travelling. in total i'll be in the air for a little under 14 hours. and by the time it's over i should be in hong kong which should be interesting.
