- A nice relaxing day with a fairly short distance. Good, as I then had a
chance to catch up on the sleep which I have been missing out on through
the last couple of hectic days!

Actually what happens through out a long event like this is that while
running the major part of the distance out in the country & farmlands of
the world, you gradually develop a "peasant"-like mentality where each big
city or metropolis seems more and more a hectic and at times even chaotic
place; even though I used to live in a big city myself!

- Though; I think that you can see from the pictures from today?s run that
Melbourne is a scenic city; and even offers quite nice company too :-)
Three employees from Computershare ran the first part of today?s stage
making sure I didn?t loose my way, besides giving a much welcomed insight
to the daily working life which I at times come to miss on an extremely
interesting but also very changing journey of everyday-running-life:
changing cultures, changing nature and each day a new home :-)
