Today I received an email from an expat living in France who says: "Apart from my friends, there’s not much in the eastern suburbs of Sydney I miss these days, but that’s definitely one of the things which makes me homesick. Those murals still give me a great sense of hope." I did not intend to make people homesick with this blog, but that's the beauty of the web that no matter where you are you can connect with home.
The email gave me a reason to look at my blog again. I discovered that most of the links it contains don't work any more. That is a real shame; websites should not be so transient. But they are beyond my control, so I cannot help it. Anyone interested in the history of the green bans will just have to google it.
