If anyone's interested I've put some more photos up on conspiracy - Canberra Airport Open Day 2008, Booze Train to Tarago 2008, and Canberra Festival Balloon Fiesta 2009.

The Airport Open Day last year was totally awesome.  And yet for some reason I never blogged about it?? Go figure.  The best part was getting up close and personal with some of the jets that I've flown on.  My favourite of course being the 767.  They told people not to touch, but I couldn't resist.  I was walking under its belly and it was *just there* so I had to give it a pat :)

The Booze Train to Tarago (actually the "Dance Train") was definitely an experience.  Me little brother begged us to go to make up numbers, so we went along.  Fortunately Y was there as well. Unfortunately for her she had a sprained ankle at the time, but it did mean she sat with us the whole night ;)  I have to say though, I've never seen so many Canberra bogans in one place.  Most of them were pissed before they got on the train.  They drank what they could all the way out to Tarago where they all got off to go down to the local hall with their entire eskies full of booze.  We stayed behind and enjoyed the atmosphere of the train with the staff who were all having their dinner.  Then the power went out and my brother scrambled off to fix it.  Then all the bogans came back.  Some of them continued to dance in the dance car, and others passed out in their seats.  If we could get cost price again and good company again I'd probably go again.
