Subject: Bushfires in Australia
Hello Jonathan, I am in Melbourne but due up in Sydney over the next few days. (Have been putting off the travel for as long as possible, hoping that the situation would improve.) The fires are still a serious problem in some parts of New South Wales and still affecting Sydney, although things are not as hideous as they were some days ago. If you have any flexibility, it would probably be better to do the Melbourne part of your trip first, by which stage, hopefully, the weather will have turned in Sydney and the fires will be under control. If you need an update before you go, don't hesitate to email directly. I should tell you that the weather in Melbourne has been very ordinary for the past few days, so pack some layers of clothing! You will probably have a fair range of temperatures within the space of your visit. Safe travelling, Joan Melbourne, Australia
