Boera

Chapter 97.

Needed to escape the city for a moment. Sick I struggled to the sun and was dragged neither kicking nor screaming to the coast. The fact I can see and breathe the sea air from my sickbed in front of the Mitchell Johnson demolition of the English did not perturb my friends from Holland, New Zealand or South Africa and they were in good belief that the fresh sea Porebada winds would cure what ails me. That and a few cold lagers, some prawns and more lobster.

After my sojourn I returned to my sickbed to discover the demolition was over and the Australian batsman were rubbing the salt into the Lion's wounds as they were once again dismissed for less than a useful score. Three Innings does not yet make a series but despite my malaise, the Australians are playing a version of the game in which I enjoy.

Almost time for some more medication...
That's the winning version you're referring to, I presume. Cool shot here. I like the rows of buildings.

@snowflakes86 - near the sea? they're right on top of it! Thanks Her and I will try to get better.

Warm, lovely day ? -11 here ! Very cold. No envy on the malaria though. Hope you feel better soon.
December 7th, 2013  
That's very reminiscent of parts of Asia, with stilt homes like that. Rest up and get well soon.
December 7th, 2013  
A lovely scene!! Hope you feel better soon!!

@carolmw - I'm feeling better.
December 7th, 2013

Beautiful capture. Get well soon.

@traceyhn - Nasty. 9am and 26ºC Still positive too.

@daisy - the drugs are working.
December 7th, 2013  
I like the stilts...your temps are better than ours -31C in the AM without windchill!! That would cool you down if you're feverish!
December 7th, 2013  
@lynnb - Minus 31ºC??? Where do you live? Siberia?
December 7th, 2013  
@bobfoto Nope...just Canada...southern Alberta, just north of Montana!!
December 8th, 2013  
Over the water - fishing houses? Poor Jason - in the land of the malaise!
December 8th, 2013  
Minus 31 C is getting down there. We are a toasty minus 22 C here. I like your picturesque scene. It is pretty much what a lot of us expect for a tropical fishing village scene.
December 8th, 2013  
@lynnb - I hear Canada gets cold... no chance of the Winter Olympics ever being held in Port Moresby!

@maggiemae - nope, not a fishing house, you'll find them in Indonesia... these are houses for living.

@rvwalker - toasty?

what's ailing you, kid? i stay away for a few days and you get sick. sick and lobster never happen to me. i'm barely recovering from that nasty flu-like ailment last week and i still have no appetite, 'cept for chocolate. :-) it's only -5 here and we're just 'warming' up for those -30 -45 celcius days to come. this photo reminds me so much of manila and this http://365project.org/summerfield/365/2011-11-25. i could almost feel the warm salty breeze.
December 8th, 2013  
@summerfield - I'm getting better!
December 8th, 2013  
it's a balmy -7C in Vancouver BC Canada without the windchill. Still BBQ weather. Hope your feeling better soon Jason.
December 8th, 2013  
@blahowd - Still BBQ Weather! That's awesome! Feeling not so bad this evening.... no BBQ, but am thinking I'll be okay shortly. Thanks.
December 8th, 2013  
I'm sorry to hear you're poorly. I'm almost sorry enough to be glad you had some good cricket to watch, but sadly it wasn't good. (!) Lovely view, bet anyone would feel good there :)
December 8th, 2013  
@bobfoto Hehehe yes near the sea and the sea water is below the floor;) i like house like that.:)
December 8th, 2013
