Up, up and away....

....with TAA the friendly way to LA. Well, we used to have a domestic airline called TAA (Trans Australia Airlines) but it was long ago subsumed by its then overseas flying equivalent Qantas.

As this is posted I am scheduled to depart for Los Angeles for a holiday in the United States. We won't be spending any time in Los Angeles which for this holiday will be our USA entry and exit port.

We are scheduled to visit New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York City, Washington DC, Las Vegas and Palm Springs.

Will post reports where possible.

Dumplings anyone?

Taking my seat for 'Single Asian Female' I immediately had a yearning for Yum Cha or something similar.

The main set was a family run Chinese Restaurant. Don't be fooled by the empty seats in the auditorium. By the time the play commenced every seat was occupied.

Single Asian Female

(Belvoir Street Theatre)

'Single Asian Female' focuses on three females; a fifties something recently divorced mother and her two daughters, one aged in her late twenties and the other a high school teenager. Mum is an immigrant whose home origin cultural mannerisms and accent embarrass the younger daughter. The older daughter is more tolerant of her mother but suffers the boorish behaviour she experiences as a first generation Australian.

Set mostly in the family run Chinese Restaurant and its upstairs bedroom, this is a vibrant and entertaining tale of the immigrant experience.
