Sydney is in the midst of the OPEC, err APEC, conference right now. Lots of security of course, the ‘great wall’ of Sydney security fence, and 20 car cavalcades for Mr Bush and co (who, by the way, managed to bring 250 staff with him!).

It’s all been quite serious on the harbour, with police boats and jetskis zooming around; helicopters with searchlights are hovering overhead, which looked really cool last night when it was quite misty.

Today was an APEC public holiday, so I think most people took the opportunity to head out of town, resulting in something of a ghost town. Apparently tomorrow is the big day for those up for a bit of a protest. I’m kind of tempted to head in and take some photos, but don’t really fancy ending up on some intelligence database. Perhaps I could wear a disguise: a long beard and turban perhaps? Oh, no wait, the Chaser boys already tried that one.

Ooo, where’s my tin foil hat? In the middle of writing this, my PC just crashed … yikes, they’re on to me! Better publish this quick.

Hey, what’s that red-dot on my chest ….
