Australia Day, and the last day at the dig!! After informing Matt and Bourke that ‘If you still want to break me you’ve only got a day left’ I trundled off to the trench for a final bash at it. I cleaned some rocks until they were gleaming and shiny and excavated another pit before presenting the workmen with some pastries to say goodbye and thank you. ‘I don’t know’ I replied in response to a question about whether I would ever visit Jordan again. ‘Inshallah, Inshallah’ he replied (If God wills it).

(Sob) Arabic is such as cool language, and I may never see these people again.

PM Fancy dress party and as it fell on ‘Australia Day’ the theme was ‘Australian Icons; of COURSE.

Party attendees included:

– an Austrian, since everyone gets Austrians and Australians mixed up
– an eerily convincing Les Patterson, 
– TWO  Bourkes !!!!  complete with the beard, the cap and the Keffiah underneath the cap
–  two Faceless men  –  the ones who toppled Rudd and  installed Gillard)
–  an eerily convincing Edna Everage
– an eerily convincing  Bindi Irwin.
