LCA 2004: 11 January 2004

Well, I’m at the airport, waiting for my plane which leaves in about an hour… I’ll be getting into Adelaide about 12:30pm local time. See y’all there.

I’m now in Adelaide, and have walked from my accomodation at St Marks to Rundell Street mall. It took about 15 minutes to get there (slightly uphill), and about 10 minutes to get back. University of Adelaide, the site for linux.conf.au 2004 is one block closer than the mall, but is at the far end of the mall. I’d say that makes the official estimate of how long it is going to take to walk there a little optimisitic, but not too bad. I’ll only have to do it around 16 times, so not too bad.

So, Adelaide is called the city of churches. Here’s some pictures of the cathedral on the same street as St Marks…




… And here are some pictures of St Marks itself (from the street)…







… And the building I am actually staying in for the week. I think I’m the first to arrive in my building, as I can’t see anyone else around.
