Perth does CHOGM

Perth Western Australia at night.

Fighter jets flying overhead and rattling my office windows.
Concentration of police and security in the Central Business District.
Vehicles and personnel are being stopped and searched under special temporary laws.
The homeless have been moved on.

The Prime Minister & Cabinet move into the city and set up house.
The red carpet is no doubt being cleaned and shampooed before being rolled out for HM’s arrival on Wednesday.
We are told that some of the world’s most powerful will be rolling in over the next few days…
… and the local expression of OWS will seek to test them.

Should be an interesting week here in Perth as the Commonwealth Heads of Government gather.

In the meantime, we will continue to push back domestic chaos as we make early morning runs to the airport on family business and attend to the continuing round of daily distractions, opportunities and conundrums.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.

  1. Not long back from the airport after collecting family from the last Qantas flight ex Sydney. HM had just flown out, but no hassles. With Qantas now down, we have a lot of CHOGM folk looking for alternative ways out of the most isolated capital in the world.
