Serene morning swim at the hotel’s pool overlooking downtown Sydney. The crowd was warm and welcoming at the Hopetoun last night – over the course of our hour together, they helped me to lift my cloudy mood. I did an on-air interview on Triple J radio just before the show, via mobile phone – radio banter here is uber-chirpy and high-spirited, much like it is in the UK.

Hey Megan,
How did the Melbourne shows go? I got lots of great reports from Queenscliff. Just thought I better let you know that there have been an alarming number of shark sightings/incidents up here over the last few weeks, especially around The Pass and Julian Rocks where they take you scuba diving. I wouldn’t be going too far out at the moment – might wanna rethink your dive.
