As you can see from the length of time between posts, I am not good at this type of thing.
Anyway, we have loaded up the truck and moved to Sydney!
I will (hopefully more frequently) be blogging more of my adventures in Sydney and around the world.
I will hopefully not be traveling as much, but I am sure I will still be doing my fair share!
It is amazing to me how many different people you meet when you are outside of the USA.
Tonight I was at the hotel bar, and I struck up a conversation with the guy next to me.
He was a diamond dealer from New Zealand.
For the ladies out there, New Zealand is the cheapest place in the world to buy diamonds.
We started talking, and of course since we were talking diamonds, I brought up the movie Blood Diamond.
He started to tell me a story about a guy that showed up in his office with over 200 carats of uncut diamonds.
He said he was with a “large black African man”, and wanted to sell these diamonds. Of course he called the police, they referred him to customs, and the hunt is still on for these people.
You wouldn’t meet these kind of people at the bar in Columbus, Ohio. Stay tuned…
