@JustJimWillDo Ms Le Guin spoke at an event at Adelaide Uni and I was late getting there. I am forever sad.

@JustJimWillDo Ms Le Guin is one of my favourite writers, and I’m annoyed to have missed meeting her by a matter of hours.

@ajhill_alan The taxis are good people, though there’s only 23 plates for the entire upper Blue Mountains. Book ahead at busy times.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@ajhill_alan The trains are reliable but relatively infrequent. The buses even more infrequent, and die early, dunno how reliable they are.
