Down Under

This blog edition comes from Australia where I am staying with the lovely daughter. When in Melbourne this is the view from my daily walk – amazing.
It is a little easier to swing the arm in the warm sun but the current medication has not helped the tremor at all. Parkinson’s is a very individual condition and I will continue to search for the right medication for me. I have joined my daughter for my first attempts at Yoga but show no natural ability.
What an amazing country Australia is, so much to see and do. I loved our weekend in the Macedon Ranges, north of Melbourne, staying in a delightful farm cottage; freshly baked bread and cakes provided! We watched the DVD of the film “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and then the next day walked across the paddocks to explore the area and climb the rocks; didn’t find the missing schoolgirls! We did however find some delicious wines to try!
We also travelled in the bush with friends to Lake Mungo, a dry lake where human bones from 45,000 years ago have been found and features sand cliffs know as The Wall of China

I have now had over 2,500 viewings on the blog from 33 countries including many from Brazil and some from countries as diverse as Taiwan and Bosnia Herzegovina. Between 7 and 10 million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson’s and this will increase with an ageing population; we need to continue to work together to find a cure.
