I look out the window today and see Broome but I still have strong memories of being in Mongolia. Memories like lunch on a hill watching a rainbow over Ulaanbaatar, dissecting cooked pine cones for their delicious kernels, sipping rather odd fermented horse milk and meeting dozens of artists all busy in the studio complex run by the Mongolian Artist Union. Some form of cultural exchange between Mongolian and Australian artists will hopefully occur in the future with a bit of luck and planning.
I managed to complete thirty small Travailogue works while basically enjoying the capital city and its warm summer days. It would be excellent to return to Mongolia and see the countryside, more time is always needed. Heading south was next on the agenda. Back to Beijing to pack my studio into some boxes and my personal belongings into the rucksack. Onto Bangkok for a pit stop and then to Sydney to catch a few exhibitions and friends, finally here in the tropical town of Broome for my BASE exhibition and quite possibly a long ocean wallow at the beautiful Cable beach.
