"Howard Jacobson explores four cultural iconoclasts: satirist Barry Humphries, art critic Bob Hughes, feminist/academic Germaine Greer & writer/broadcaster Clive James, who left Australia in the 50s & 60s to change the world."
In the first episode he makes the point of how nice it is for these people who are still alive to be recognised in this way (unlike in the old country) but I have selected to show the tile of one of the old-timers.

Hubby had a meeting in the city for the day on Saturday so I decided to go make my own adventure. As almost always, we caught the train as it is so much more pleasant to be able to relax, read or chat for the 1 hour 40 min trip and not have to fuss with parking and stuff.

As I predicted our next Wayfaring trip was to Wollongong again and I followed a little further down the bike path. This section was not so nice. The creek, though pleasant was cluttered with garbage and the native bush despoiled by many many weeds - like the lantana strangling the tea tree above. The bird calls were lovely but a rat running across the path ahead sealed the fate of this walk, I am not going to do any more posts on it. I did a trip to Sydney this weekend and will do that instead.
