A first for me  (post #68751)

Well, I have met my very first CTer. Ouzo and Mr. Ouzo are visiting Sydney at the moment to participate in a Regatta, and DH and I met them for a lovely lunch on NYE. They are both as lovely in real life as I would have expected, but poor DH was almost enamoured when discovered a mutual interest in planes AND bicycles. LOL.

We tried out a new to us Brazilian restaurant which was really yummy. Ouzo and I got sizzle plates, but DH went with the BBQ, which involved waiters and huge skewers offering a taste of this and that. Seemed to go down very well with the male contingent. Sally - there was a very interesting grainy substance that I can't recall the name of. I also really loved the fried banana!

Unfortunately I don't have any photos, because we forgot the camera, but the tourists did get a shot, so I'm sure it will get uploaded when they get home.
