Vacation From Vacation

I’ve started my Melbourne vacation from vacation. It has been a pretty productive first day. I got a new site up and running. It is called Where On Google Earth?. It is pretty simple. I put up an image from Google Earth and you guess where it is from.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be going through my backlog of article I’ve intended to write as well as going through some of the photos which are sitting on my hard drive.

So far, I’m enjoying Australia, but it does seem expensive. The price of a 600ml bottle of Diet Coke (about 20oz) is A$3.50 (about US$3.25). That almost rivals the cost of Tahiti. It is about 3x the cost I’ve seen everywhere else. Other things don’t seem as expensive, but it is still on the high end of prices I’ve seen so far.

The internet here is reasonably fast. Something which I am taking full advantage of.

Tomorrow, in addition to photos, I’ll be going to the US Consulate in Melbourne to get my passport renewed. That should take about 2 weeks to process from what I’ve heard.

    Love your “Google” blog! It’s really interesting that you should use the price of Diet Coke as a benchmark for living standards. Haha… someday, there might even be a ‘Coca Cola’ Index Fund! lol
