In Adelaide for the Landmark Tutorial
I'm sitting in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt in Adelaide. But I have to be quick - Hyatt hotels seem to run a business model of gouging their guests. Still sore from paying £300 for half-a-dozen calls home from their Santiago outpost last year, I'm slightly resenting the A$15 they charge for just 30 minutes internet access.
I flew into Adelaide at 7 am this morning, and since then I've had a quick sleep and explored the city on foot. I've been here before, but I've only really driven through the centre, so this is the first time I've had a good look. It's quite a compact, easy-going city. I particularly enjoyed wandering around the botanic gardens on this sunny, gently warm late autumn day, in a jet-lagged semi-trance.
I'm here for the Landmark Australia Tutorial, and having seen the full programme for the first time today, I'm very excited by the prospect of being immersed in the world of Australian fine wine for a week.
