ScouseLeeM on Tour
25th Mar 2009 - 29th Apr 2009

arrived in Mebourne at 7am to be greeted by grey gloomy skies and constant drizzly rain - not what I travelled 12  thousand miles for. After trying to stay awake in vain, nodded off at my hotel until early evening and completely missed the Formula One 'behind the scenes' tour at the track. Met up with my old buddy Matt for a quick drink in teh evening, and discovered that the old sod has gone and gotten himself engaged, good work fella...

After a lot more sleep, met up with Matt for day one of the GP with a hearty breakfast, Off to the track where Michelle, Michael and Steve soon appeared to complete our intrepid group. I won't go into too much detail about the 4 days at the track, seeing as I've done it all twice before ( see photos) - but undoubted highlights where the 'dancing'  performances of the highly talented XXXX Angels, a British win for Jenson Button in the feature race, and a free concert by The Who on the final night (good for a bunch of old geezers). Also squeezed in a  night of pampering at the Gold Class cinema, barely avoided nodding off during the very odd movie 'Duplicity', but at least he food was good.

We had a major drama on the Sunday, when Matt lost his wallet, looked like a pickpocket had struck. Amazingly, an honest local saw it fall to the floor from his bag, and called him to return it - so all's well that ends well. All too soon, it was time to go for a brief fry at the beach in Broome, tough life...
