I sure hope that you get paid enough to cover your travel expenses and what a great way to see some of the world.

RE: Where is the best coffee in the world?
I don't pay for the travel when I am invited to teach or lecture. And it always includes a stipend or per diem for daily needs. How much of the world I get to see depends on my schedule and my hosts. Often I see the hotel, the hospital and a few restaurants in between. Sometimes, though, like in Egypt a few years before the Great Unpleasantness, my hosts were so enthusiastic for me to see the many great treasures they have that I was spending more time being taken to amazing locations (Karnak! Wow!) than I was teaching in the hospital. And there are places like London, Munich and Paris where I am a regular, and I have my "little spots" and such.

Miami - Cuban espresso. Probably the best I ever had. Can't get that here. We buy our coffee at the grocery store, its the most awful crud I have ever tasted. Which is a good thing. If it tasted better I'd be bouncing off the walls and gerd'n all night long.

Make sure you build a lot of spare time into your Perth schedule!

Make sure you build a lot of spare time into your Perth schedule!

One month, almost, excluding travel, so I hope I will have a lot of time, actually. It really depends on how heavy the work load is - I will be helping to set up a department similar to mine and train the doctors and administrators (you NEVER train the nurses, they'll bite you). Some of the ones I have selected as the potential heads of the department are already here under fellowship grants learning my methods, so they should be good and ready to take the helm after I have finished whatever need doing - I am hoping it will mostly be hand holding, to be honest, since these are very bright people I have here now, and after they return nine months ahead of me, they should be well on the way to having the department ready to run by the time I get there.

My hope is that I will have enough time to go into the outback a bit, and to explore some of the more interesting (for me) areas, and get some serious star gazing in - something I have to go up into the mountains to do here. And if there is time and I feel brave enough, to see if I can still surf, although it has been thirty-odd, nearly forty years since I last hanged ten. Two of my nephews are actually in Oz right now surfing safariing, and I have asked them to scout out some prime spots for an old surfer dude like me.

SWMBO has just retired after 30 years as a pediatric ED nurse. I'll make sure she doesn't see your post, otherwise you WILL get bitten when you arrive.

Which institution are you working with? UWA, Fiona Stanley ?

Depending on how much spare time you get, and the time of year, you can see and experience quite a lot here. When the time gets closer we'll help work out a schedule with you. If nothing else it will be a good excuse to brush the cobwebs off my telescope. Smile

RE: Where is the best coffee in the world?
QEII I think, if that makes sense, but I don't have my diary in front of me - someone else arranges this sort of thing and I just go - they say "you are going to Perth" and I say "oh, okay" and leave it at that until a few weeks before I go, and I don't know what my fellowship boys and girls are attached to, as it doesn't impact my work teaching them. It may be the Royal, which I think is part of the University, since I recall something Royal mentioned, but then I just returned from a Royal Hospital in the UK, and that may be on my mind still. I had assumed for a while that I was working at two institutes, but now I am not sure, it may be one that has two names - I will have to go and check in the system or ask my boss's secretary.

As for your SWMBO, if you ask her, she will tell you nurses train doctors, not the other way around, and the rest of the time they tolerate us. While Swiss nurses tend to be a bit more docile with docs, most places I have worked the doctors have developed a healthy respect for them, and a clear fear of the head nurse or matron. Rightly so, IMHO.

And thanks for the offer of brushing off the old telescope. It would be fun. There is one observatory in the Outback I wanted to visit, but I have no idea if it is possible as I don't know how to get there from Perth. I also want to work with a physiotherapist based in Perth while I am there - she does amazing work and I want to observe her methods. She was here to lecture at our PT dept a few years back and I missed it, so I hope to catch her there - her work with dancers is supposed to be ground-breaking.

RE: Where is the best coffee in the world?
QEII does make sense - the Queen Elizabeth II medical centre is one of the three main hospitals here (the others being Royal Perth and Fiona Stanley). There's quite a lot of cross-over among the three so it's quite likely you'll be dealing with people from each. There are two medical schools - University of Western Australia and Notre Dame. UWA is physically located right next to QEII.

There's only one optical observatory of any size here, in the hills just outside Perth. However that has been downgraded due to government cutbacks and unfortunately doesn't do much research any more. The most famous Australian optical observatory is at Siding Spring in NSW - a long way from here. WA is becoming one of the world centres for radio astronomy. One half of the Square Kilometre Array is being built in this state (the other half in South Africa). When completed, it will be the most powerful astronomical instrument ever built.

RE: Where is the best coffee in the world?
I am getting excited already - now, how to plan a trip to Siding Spring.......hmmmmm..... my secretary has informed me that the entire thing is arranged through the University but is based at the QEII and possibly one other hospital to become "competence centres" depending on how the fellowship doctors get distributed when they go home - or if they even have jobs when they get home. If successful it will then move on to the rest of the major cities in Oz.
