2008-February-On the Road Again-p1
we had five weeks in byron bay, in which we recharged our batteries, ate some home cooked dahl, hung out with friends...
...soaked up the lush green of the forest, and – at last - emptied the suitcases.
(that’s maniko with my guitar – she has a great cd out called ‘house of the beloved’ produced by kit walker - track it down – she’s one of our all time favourite songwriters)
our first stop was sydney.
we love sydney - its pulse is full–on, fast and vibrant – a bit of a culture shock after the silence of the rain forest.
fortunately we spent some time near the ocean...
it was great to hook up with manose again, of course!
we’d said goodbye in hawaii and he left for nepal to spend time with his family...
...and kamal, our trusty down-under sound tec, recording engineer and ashram pal...overjoyed, as always, to see his old sparring parnter manose.
...and last but not least, we were reunited with our australian tour promoter and sweetheart, chris hooper
