Most of the day was spent in Ipswich, an hours' train trip from Brisbane, with friends from my full time working days both of whom are recovering from serious, life threatening illnesses. It was good to find them both in fine spirits and well on the way to reasonable health. I spent a quiet night back in Brisbane watching the World Cup on television but took a break to wander briefly about the city centre in the early evening.
The square in front of Brisbane's City Hall. The coloured lights embedded in the square change colour every thirty seconds or so.
