My good friend Chris was visiting from New Zealand.
I always enjoyed catching up with him. It was incredible to think that we had managed to stay in touch after having first met in Aleppo all those years ago.
We caught up for breakfast at a Norwegian style cafe near King's Cross and reminisced about our days traveling and the painful realities that now faced the people of Syria. We couldn't help but think of those people who had been so kind to us when we had been there and the torture that they must now be facing.
After breakfast, we returned to Coogee for a walk.
It was late Autumn in Sydney. It was meant to be getting "cold".
