Syndia and I arrived in Fremantle today in preparation for her exam tomorrow.

I've never been to Perth before, and have decided that I quite like it. It's a nice city. It seems a bit quiet, though, and I think I like it in the same way that I like Brisbane. I'm not convinced that I like the idea of a ten-hour round trip just to get somewhere that's just like home...

We took a practice walk to the Fremantle Hospital this afternoon so that there were no surprises on Syndia's arrival there tomorrow. Seen one, seen 'em all, but at least we didn't rock up and see a sign pointing to some unit that she didn't know they had, so hopefully there won't be any surprise patients tomorrow.

We're staying at the Esplanade Hotel. They claim outdoor, heated spas, which I'm going to get to enjoy and Syndia won't. There are *some* advantages to just being the practice dummy, at least...
