Said goodbye to my mate Mark last night.
He’s my closest friend and the lucky guy is off to America for a few years to teach. Went to see a movie and then a quick snack, shook hands and that’s it – gee I’m gonna miss him. I guess the thing that concerns me most though is that he’s considering becoming a vegetarian. Apparently American meet has too high a fat content for his liking so, whoops, there it goes. Maybe we can organise comfort packages of good Aussie steak to see him through.
My farewell gift (apart from a great fridge magnet of his most despised Doggies player that Rae suggested) is his own travel diary web site. I can recommend adding www.markuswalsh.com to your bookmarks/favourites – Mark has a unique world view that will be well worth reading when he starts it up.
