and oh good grief. He is going to stand in front of only chosen people and the "public" will be stuffed into a tiny little corner at the back, where we will only be able to see a glimpse of him sideways on. We're going to be hundreds of metres away (well, okay one hundred metres) and there will only be room for 1000 people or so. HMPH!
AND I now know why our friend with a shop in that area told us today she was just fined - more than $200 - for putting a model wearing some of her handmade clothing outside her shop door - obviously the police are already keeping everything clear. Oh drat. There is almost no way we will get in. I wonder if we know anyone at all who lives in sight of the podium - we nearly do, but not quite.
Oh well, every cloud... our friend's daughter has a little new cafe just there - she'll make an absolute fortune if it's the only place anyone can get a cup of coffee.
