Tuesday in Canberra

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.
