APEC... a round table

Somehow, this huge round table was able to be placed inside the Sydney Opera House for an APEC meeting.

Great looking table, but sometimes a circle, while 'diplomatic', is not always the most efficient shape. It not only takes up too much space, but also wastes a lot.

I spent most of the day out of the house, going to Sue B's new place for lunch as Elizabeth was visiting from Melbourne (for work). Sue made a prawn sambal dish served with rice, and her mother Betty made a great dessert with strawberries. After dropping Elizabeth off at the airport, we went to the factory outlet near the airport where I bought a new pair of shoes to replace my current pair which has a hole in the leather.
