Hi everyone!

Ages since I've written anything but as we're nearing the end of our trip it's super busy! Since the last entry we've finished our crossing of Australia, ending up in Sydney where I got a desperately needed haircut, we climbed a tower of Harbour Bridge & ate in the shadow of the Opera House. We also had to scrap our poor 300 quid car for a crappy 80 pounds because no one was stupid enough to buy it!

After Sydney we flew to Fiji which recently suffered a terrifying sounding military coup! We were pretty unsure about going but as it turned out we didn't see a single sign of it & everyone was dead nice, shouting BULA to us. The islands are beautiful and the water was clear enough for 30m of visibility or more which made the snorkelling great!

After a whole week of Kirsty sitting in the sun & me sitting on the opposite side of the pool in the shade like we'd had a huge argument we left Fiji for the U.S. flying into L.A. where we did the tourist sights. The whole town of Hollywood is a bit rundown & absolutely stuffed full of nutcases! At least 1 in 20 people talks to themselves or rants about JESUS!!!! From there we travelled by train to El Paso & walked across to Mexico(scary!) for 35c going over is so easy, coming back is really strict! Next was San Antonio where we went to the annual rode & saw men getting rag-dolled by bulls & different men throwing ropes around calve's throats. Now we're in Houston where I want to go to the NASA space centre at Johnson!!

It's pretty hectic at the moment & I hate typing so I'll just let you look at the photos.

See you soon (home in 3 weeks-shit!)
