Where I stayed
Sonja and Col's
It was Andy and Mandy's daughters 21st so the house was full of 'young people' (in our comparatively older geriatric description). We stayed there for a few hours, drinking eating and chatting as all the boys wore only thunderpants pulled up and skinny jeans pulled down, the girls all wearing short dresses, killer heels and matching bags. I think a few people were going to get carried away today as starting so early generally only leads to disaster. We did stop at a bottle shop to get another carton of beer where Erica got a pick up by a rather camp man who, after I walked off, declared a love for her handbag, and smiles and flattery
After visiting one other house, Des (cols mate) drove us to the races and seven of us all jumped out of Col's truck and made our way over to the racecourse. At the gate we all got waved in except one person, the lady got asked for ID to prove she was over 18. This is the only place in six months we have been were we didn't bring our passports so IDless E had to flirt back with the security guy who in the end let her through (possibly on the basis I was her Dad?).
The races was a very glam affair, lots of hats and frocks. Mens fashion on the other hand was well, different. From blokes in pink suits, to people dressed like Slash from guns and roses. When Col and Sonja advised me I could wear either a suit or denim shorts, a vest and a thong (well thongs, but I cant accept they mean flip flops). Perhaps the nicest outfits were a group of women all dressed in wedding dresses however one of the girls was dressed in a suit, with a strap on penis. One of the women had just been wrapped in toilet roll but the result was a classic picture and perhaps one of my favorite pics of the trip.
After the complaints about mid strength beer being the only thing served which wound up the guys rotten as it meant no getting drunk
We kept on drinking and after dark we tried to get a taxi back to Andy and Mandy's. As usual with the races anywhere we stood for ages in the rain before finally giving up and calling on Sonja's brother to pick us all up. After some sausages and more drinking at Andy and Mandy's we got a taxi back to Sonja and Col's and pretty much headed straight for bed as we were going camping early the next day.
In hindsight perhaps the funniest thing about the day was the fact that we paid hardly any attention to the races as so much else was going on and not one person put on a single bet all day. Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of Lady E looking stunning in one of Sonja's dresses. My shirt was borrowed from Col and a little concerning the fact that a man who is about 6 feet 5 and of an Australian build felt a bit small on me.
Regardless the two pictures of me with the chicks with plastic dicks is definitely one my contenders for photo of the trip. Only in Aus.... Only in Aus.
