I was also quite taken by the wording on this storefront. 

Presumably, in the owner's mind, gourmet precludes the culinary traditions of Italy and South Africa

Having negotiated our way back to the train, the ladies made their way to the cabins.

We were about to call it a night when we were joined by a young bloke I'd sighted with a camera and tripod over the preceding few days. 

He'd been carrying a copy of Uncut before dinner, and in the brief conversation that followed he turned out to be a regular reader of Mojo

After Gavin called it a night we sat discussing music for a good hour before I decided an uncertainty about what lay over the horizon in Perth meant that it wasn't a good idea to continue sitting up. 

Still it was one of the most enjoyable conversations I've had for many a year. 

Talking Derek TrucksLittle FeatCaptain Beefheart and Forever Changes with a young bloke in his twenties or early thirties on the Indian Pacific.  

Who'd have thought?
