Just letting you all know that I will get back to this site soon. A whole bunch of shows I have seen and not written about. In particular the enigma of Every Breath, written and directed by Benedict Andrews, and the classy rendition of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, directed by Sam Strong for the STC. But I have also got a heap of typing to do for the National Library – and so I’ve also taken myself away somewhere calm and quiet to do it. Chiang Mai, which I visited previously in November 2010. That was in the cool season. This time it’s been hot hotter and hottest. The end of the dry season! Which just broke with rain about an hour ago – temperature plummeted about 15 degrees in a few minutes. Not like Sydney (I hear) it just cooled everything off and then stopped. No doubt more to come in next few weeks.
