Melbourne Skybus Architecture

14 April 2018

The long winded getaway

Heading to Melbourne airport on the Skybus

This is my 4th or 7th time going to mainland China depending on if you count border crossings to the Shenzhen special administrative region or not. This time I will be going around in a big loop from Beijing to Shanghai, via Zhengzhou, Xi'an, Chongqing, Wuhan and Hangzhou.
No doubt that will be confusing, there will be smog, and not enough mountains.
To celebrate my departure, the USA, UK and France have all decided to bomb Syria, again, because it worked so well the last few times.

Now onto the transport to the airport. In exciting news a new train to Melbourne airport was announced this week, with $5 billion dollars committed to complete a study over the next 5 years to prove that it cant possibly be done in a timely manner, so that will be exciting. There are already at least 3 different routes RULED OUT depending on which flavour of government is trying to be the most annoying.
Because of the persistent lack of a train, I as usual had to walk to the skybus, which is OK, its not far, but today was really very windy. Girls should probably wear underpants on windy days if they are going to be walking around in floaty dresses.
It was actually so windy I was concerned trees would blow onto me as I was walking along the path by the river, and I would not notice because I was too busy staring at that girls bum which was completely on display for everyone.

What does all this mean for my flight? I dont know yet, but I really need it to be on time.

You see, Singapore airlines have booked me on a flight with a 50 minute connection in Singapore to my next flight to Beijing, it will not have to be delayed by much for me to be sleeping in the airport. When I checked in and advised I was connecting to Beijing she said 'Wow, thats a tight transfer time, are you a good runner?' Yes.

On my last trip I suggested I would need to move apartments as another skyscraper was being built behind me, spoiling my view. So move I did, here is the new view of the city of Melbourne from my balcony. Just next to me they are building Australia's new tallest building, which will be 99 levels. A very strange decision to not add on just one more.

And here is a bit more of the view. At night, every hour, the casino shoots giant fireballs into the sky, I always know what time it is. Also cattle trucks constantly drive by on the street below, so I always get to see cows on their way to become dinner.

Rather than take the normal skybus photo, here is the back of the seat in front of me. Do you like artistic bokeh shots of metallic textures? If you do you might like this photo.

And here I am, looking even older than on my last trip 6 months ago. Still no grey hairs. Each time I wash my hair in the shower entire handfuls of hair come out, and yet I still have lots left. I am collecting it in a giant ball which I am going to offer for sale to charity. You can gofundme my hairball charity if you wish, together we can make giant hairball charity sales a reality!
