So once again I went to the RTA office again. Waited in line to get told that there might be a problem with the proof of address - despite having everything the last two people had wanted me to have (mail, a form signed by Sof, etc.). When I protested she talked to her manager and it was deemed enough. So I have gotten my cars title and registration transfered! Finally - Yea!
Drove to Canberra - not to exciting, but managed to do it without getting to lost! Once I got out of the Sydney region the road was very uncrowded and I could zip along at 130 km/h. Still took me nearly four hours to get there. Checked into a shared room in a pub and headed out.
Went to the National Gallery to see the Chihully / Hockney / ? (glass / painting / printers) show. Chihuly is a Seattle artist that has his studio directly across for where I used ot row. The show was pretty impressive and I enjoyed it - though an hour was plenty of time.
Spent the evening wandering around the Manuka area - had Thai for diner then caught the movie "Holly Smoke" - which I thought was very good.
