By co-incidence I saw Flinders' cat Trim the other day.......

he's on the roof of the State Library of New South Wales and is easy to miss if you don't know he's there. (In reality he circumnavigated the world with Flinders and met his untimely death marooned on the island of Mauritius.)

just near Flinders' statue.......

Bryce's inspiration is not far fetched as that particular spot by the Flinders' statue had two homeless people huddled underneath, and St. James station subway has many more. It's quite sad in a city of plenty to see.

AndyS This is so Cool!

I live in San Diego.

Still reading the book. I tend to love everything written by Bryce Courtney. "The Power of One" is a favorite of mine.
