The best thing though, is probably the climbing. I've climbed more the past week than I have in the first half of this year. Sooo weak now, terrible endurance and especially finger strength, but if I keep it up, it'll be great.
The University of Queensland St Lucia is really awesome too, and they've got some beautiful lakes with lots of birds around. I'm really excited by the work too :)
This is the first time in 5 years that I am not spending at least a month in a place with minimal contact with the outside world (ie no internet). I am missing my retreat and solitude (and reading spree), but it's still brilliant.
