Wonderful as always, but quiet.
Melbourne Cup day is a Canberra public holiday. Yes, I know. It shouldn't be.
Outside the Treasury building (where I once worked) I noticed hardly any cars - see photo. The first time in a long time.
Things must be settling down.
At the National Museum with the children I took a look at Phar Lap's heart.
Things get busy for me at 2.30 pm.
Wayne Swan has scheduled a press conference for 2.35 pm. Yes really.
